Title

The Assassination

Caption

The fourth panel painted The Temple Murals series, “The Assassination,” greets viewers as they step into the central lounge inside the Shabazz Center at Dartmouth. The panel depicts the turmoil and shock amid Malcolm X’s assassination, beginning a few seconds before he was shot at a rally (only three weeks after visiting Dartmouth). On the right side of the doorway two bodyguards gaze across the rally crowd toward the murderer, who is guided by the only distinctly white figure in the painting.
