Qubilah Shabazz

Qubilah Shabazz (born December 25, 1960) is the second daughter of MalcolmĀ X and Betty Shabazz. In 1965, she witnessed the assassination of her father by three gunmen from the Nation of Islam. She was arrested in 1995 in connection with an alleged plot to kill Louis Farrakhan, by then the leader of the organization, who she believed was responsible for the assassination of her father. Shabazz maintained her innocence. She accepted a plea agreement under which she was required to undergo psychological counseling and treatment for drug and alcohol abuse in order to avoid a prison sentence. Shabazz was born in Queens, New York, on December 25, 1960. Her father named her after Kublai Khan. Photographer and film-maker Gordon Parks was her godfather. In February 1965, when she was four years old, Shabazz roused her parents in the middle of the night with her screams: the family's house had been set on fire. One week later, together with her mother and sisters, Shabazz witnessed the assassination of her father. As a youth, Shabazz attended Quaker-run summer camps in Vermont, and at age 11 she converted to the religion from Islam.
