The two men convicted of killing American civic rights leader Malcolm X in 1965 are expected to be exonerated today, validating long held doubts about who his killer really was.

That is a screen grab from an appearance Malcolm X made on Front Page Challenge on Canadian TV just a couple of weeks before he was shot and killed in New York City.

A 22-month investigation, conducted jointly by the Manhattan district attorney’s office and lawyers for the two men, then known as Norman 3X Butler and Thomas 15X Johnson, found that prosecutors, the FBI and the New York Police Department withheld key evidence that, had it been turned over, would likely have led to the men’s acquittal.

The convictions are expected to be thrown out during a court appearance today.
