On this day in 1965, Malcolm X was assassinated in New York City at
the age of 39 by assassins identified as Black Muslims. He was about
to address the OAAU in Manhattan’s Audubon Ballroom when a man
in the 400-person audience rushed forward and shot him once in the 
chest with a sawed-off shotgun as two other men charged the stage
firing semi-automatic handguns. Malcolm X was pronounced dead at
3:30 pm, shortly after arriving at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital.

an official trip. He was the first U.S. president to visit the People’s Republic of China since it was established in 1949. This was an
important event because the United States was seeking to improve relations with a Communist country during the Cold War.
