VIDEO: I did not kill Malcolm X – Louis Farrakhan

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, in an Instagram post on Monday, February 19 denied having a hand in the assassination of iconic civil rights activist Malcolm X who was a one-time member of the religious movement.

Malcolm X publicly left the Nation of Islam on March 8, 1964, citing their “rigid teachings” as the reason. Betty Shabazz, Malcolm X’s widow believed Minister Louis and the Nation of Islam had a hand in the death of her husband.

In his Instagram post, Louis Farrakhan shared a video of him talking about his last conversation with “Brother Malcolm” with the caption:

I did not kill Malcolm X. The enemy is so frightened that Black people listen to Farrakhan that they put it out that Farrakhan had something to do with the murder of Malcolm X. This is how wicked the media is. Don’t you know as much as they hate me, if they had any proof that I did something like that, don’t you know they would take me off the street in the twinkling of an eye and bury me under the jail? I had nothing to do with my brother’s death, but I am what I am because I am a good student. I learned a lot from Brother Malcolm, but the teacher of both Malcolm, Muhammad Ali, myself and thousands of others is the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and I would hope that you will all get more acquainted with the Honorable Elijah Muhammad because God gifted us with a great man in our midst. #Farrakhan.
