Malikah Shabazz, Malcolm X’s Daughter, Pleads Guilty to Stealing 70 Year-Old’s Identity

Huffington Post, June 9, 2011

A daughter of slain civil rights leader Malcolm X has pleaded guilty to stealing the identity of an elderly family friend to run up more than $55,000 in credit card bills.


Queens prosecutors say the 46-year-old used the name of a 70-year-old woman whose late husband was one of Malcolm X’s bodyguards to acquire credit cards that Shabazz used to run up big debts.
