A daughter of slain Black civil rights activist Malcolm X, Malikah Shabazz, died Monday, the New York Police Department told CNN.
Shabazz, 56, was found unconscious by her daughter at her home in Brooklyn, according to the NYPD.
"Malcolm X was one of the most powerful voices in the fight against racism before his shooting death in New York in 1965.
He remains a symbol of inspiration for Black men and others moved by his transformation from a street hustler to a historic figure the late African-American actor Ossie Davis eulogized as "our own black shining prince."
The assassination came after a public feud between Malcolm X and the Nation of Islam's founder, Elijah Muhammad. Malcolm X had accused Muhammad of infidelity and left the Nation in March of 1964."
