Nearly five decades after the assassination of Malcolm X at the Audubon Ballroom in Washington Heights, a portion of the building is now dedicated to preserving the legacy of the African-American icon, reports Robin Elisabeth Kilmer for Manhattan Times. While the legacy of Malcolm X and the Ballroom, located at 3940 Broadway at 165th Street, are forever intertwined, the Malcolm X and Dr. Betty Shabazz Memorial and Educational Center with its mostly volunteer staff – led by interim executive director Mark Harding – strives to establish its own identity, distinct from the Audubon. Last year, over 30,000 visited the Center, said Harding, 10,000 more than 2011. “We are a conduit for people who love Malcolm all over the world,” said Harding. “We’re the custodians of this place of martyrdom.”
