ALVAN X WALCOTT: the (now deceased) Brother of current Nation of Islam leader #LouisFarrakhan and one of the suspects in the 14 February 1965 firebomb attack on the New York home of #MalcolmX. #AlvanX also reportedly collaborated with Captain Clarence X Gill of Boston’s Mosque #11 and Captain John X Peters of Springfield’s Mosque #13 in an effort to obtain a pistol silencer from the late Leon X Ameer for use in an assassination attempt on Malcolm X.
The reason this matters is that, as the MINISTER of the aforementioned Mosque #11 (and as the BROTHER of Alvan X), there is simply no way in the world that LOUIS FARRAKHAN was not, at a minimum, aware of these specific efforts to murder Malcolm and, at worst, an active PARTICIPANT in them. This would flatly contradict Farrakhan’s long-standing assertion that the only role he may have played in Malcolm’s assassination was speaking vitriolic words that contributed to the murderous climate. Farrakhan, it would now appear, may have been a DIRECT and ACTIVE participant in the Malcolm X murder plot.
Malcolm himself referred to the roles of Alvan X and Captains Gill and Peters in efforts to take his life in this 1965 TV interview.
