'Who Killed Malcolm X?' Trailer: Docuseries Set To Air On Netflix

In honor of Black History Month, Netflix is premiering a new series centering around the assassination one of America's most prolific figures.

In Who Killed Malcolm X?, which originally aired on Fusion before landing on the streaming giant, Abdul-Rahman Muhammad investigates the assassination of civil rights icon Malcolm X.

The series will inquire about the lack of police presence on the day of Malcolm's murder when the NYPD had sufficient evidence that the civil rights icon was the target of death threats, the reason why two of the three men tried for the crime were sentenced to life sentences based solely on inconsistent eyewitness testimony and no physical evidence and why key witnesses were never called to the stand.

Who Killed Malcolm X? will also feature never before seen interviews and archival footage from the civil rights icon's life. In addition, for the first time since being released from prison in 1985, one of the three men convicted of Malcolm’s murder opens up about his story.

The series will be available for streaming on Netflix on February 7, 2020.
