Malcolm X's Daughter Arrested on Identity Theft Charges

Malikah Shabazz, the 45 year-old daughter of Malcolm X, is scheduled for an extradition hearing in North Carolina today, after she was arrested there last Friday on a warrant from New York. She's charged with stealing the identity of "the widow of one of Malcolm X's bodyguards" and running up $30,000 in charges in her name. Shabazz is also involved in an ongoing dispute over Malcolm X's estate. She reportedly moved to North Carolina several months ago because "She thought it would be a peaceful place to live."

Yesterday was the 46th anniversary of Malcolm X's assassination.
