Martin Luther King, Jr. Yep, him. Him, and along with a choir and other speakers cancelled on Malcolm on the last minute.
An hour later, MLK gave his fake interview saying he's deeply saddened by Malcolm's death. MLK knew he was going to be assassinated and did nothing
Malcolm X was taken out by the CIA.
