Malcolm’s transformative life is well documented, however, little is known about Cointelpro (Counter Intelligence Program) the FBI’s campaign to destroy black leadership. This epic biographical story introduces the reader to the murky world of snitches, espionage and confidential informants as it reframes the assassination of Malcolm X. UK-based Black Belt Comics Studio presents many of the original FBI notes divulging how they actively worked to cause a rift between Malcolm X and his leader, Elijah Muhammad.

Under Elijah’s stewardship the powerful Nation became a rich organisation with over half a million members. The group’s popularity meant numerous government agencies sought to weaken the impact of the group.
