Malik Zulu Shabazz Lawyer
Malik Zulu Shabazz (born Paris Lewis in 1968) is an American attorney and the National Chairman of the New Black Panther Party. He is a frequent guest on television talk shows. Shabazz was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. His father, James Lewis, was a Muslim who was killed under mysterious circumstances when Shabazz was a child. He credits his mother, who became a successful businesswoman, and his grandfather, who introduced him to the Nation of Islam, as strong influences. Shabazz graduated from Howard University and the Howard University School of Law. In 1995, while he was a law student, Shabazz ran an unsuccessful campaign for a seat on the Washington, D.C., City Council. In 1996, Shabazz founded Black Lawyers for Justice. In 1998, he was recognized by the National Bar Association with its "Young Lawyer of the Year" award. Later that year, he again ran without success for a seat on the D.C. Council. Shabazz first came to widespread public attention in 1994, when Unity Nation, a student group he founded at Howard University, invited Khalid Abdul Muhammad, chairman of the New Black Panther Party, to speak.
