On May 19, 2022, the date Malcolm X would have celebrated his 97th Birthday, the December 12th Movement held its 33rd “Shut them down” rally in Harlem.

Malcolm X’s supporters marched up and down 125th Street, urging businesses to close for a “commercial moment of silence” in honor and respect for the civil rights activist whose life was cut short on February 21, 1965.

Malcolm X was assassinated in front of his wife and children at the Audubon Ballroom in Washington Heights.
