Malcolm X is a famous US civil rights leader. 55 years ago, someone shoots him in New York City, USA. Malcolm X is born Malcolm Little in 1925. He changes his name after he changes his religion to Islam.

He speaks for the US black community’s struggles. He says that black people help America. However, the police hurt black people because they want to live like normal people. The US government does not like Malcolm X.

For years, people talk about how Malcolm X dies. Recently, Netflix makes a show about it. People want to find out more about his death.

Difficult words: civil rights (a person’s rights to live in peace), community (a group of people), struggle (the difficult things that a person must live with).
