This forum of experts and authors will focus on the life, the politics, the domestic and international impact, and the threat of Malcolm X, who targeted him for assassination and why. It will also cover the extensive programs, like COINTELPRO and CHAOS run by government agencies from the 1950s forward to neutralize, disrupt and destroy the leadership for social change in the United States, and the role of political assassinations and surveillance in shaping the politics of America and the world to the present day.
