ICYMI: Press Conference Convened by Attorney Ben Crump and Co-Counsels Delivered New Evidence Regarding the Assassination of Malcolm X to his Daughters and the Manhattan DA
NEW YORK, NY –– Nationally renowned civil rights attorney Ben Crump and co-counsels Ray Hamlin and Paul Napoli held a news conference on Saturday, February 20th, where Reggie Wood (relative of Ray Wood) revealed evidence of a conspiracy perpetrated by the NYPD and the FBI to assassinate civil rights activist icon Malcolm X in February 1965 in Harlem, New York.
At the time, Ray Wood, an undercover police officer, confessed in a deathbed declaration letter that the NYPD and the FBI conspired to undermine the legitimacy of the civil rights movement and its leaders.
Without any training, Wood’s job was to infiltrate civil rights organizations and encourage leaders and members to commit felonious acts. He was also tasked with ensuring that Malcolm X’s security detail was arrested days before the assassination, guaranteeing Malcolm X didn’t have door security while at the Audubon Ballroom, where he was killed Feb. 21, 1965.
The letter written by Mr. Wood was delivered to three of Malcolm’s daughters, Qubilah Shabazz, Ilyasah Shabazz, and Gamilah Shabazz, who were present at the press conference on Saturday at the Shabazz Center? Reggie Wood, the relative and administrator of Ray Wood’s estate, read the letter to them.
