Help us safeguard the legacy of El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz and Dr. Betty Shabazz during the Holy month of Ramadan.

The Shabazz Center is a cultural and educational institution that harnesses the legacies of Malcolm X and Dr. Betty Shabazz to incubate social, racial, and global justice movements. Our physical space memorializes Malcolm X’s humanitarian efforts and martyrdom, and embodies the educational vision of Dr Betty Shabazz.

I remember when about twenty of us were sitting in the huge tent on Mt. Arafat and they asked me what about Hajj thus far had impressed me the most. My answer was not the one they expected but it drove home the point: The brotherhood, people of all races, colors, from all over the world coming together as one, which proved to me the power of the One God.

The Shabazz Center serves as a home for the continuance of both Malcolm X and Dr. Betty Shabazz's work and legacy. The Shabazz Center is not a museum, but rather a functional and operational space that is both a living memorial and a space for education, culture and activism.

Never have I felt more relaxed, more at peace, or nearer to God than here today at Medina. This feeling that I have right now is in itself worth my entire pilgrimage. I haven’t really felt like this since ‘my prison years’ when I would spend days upon days in solitude, hours. upon hours. Studying and praying. There is no greater serenity of mind than when one can shut the hectic noice and pace of the materialistic outside world, and seek in peace with one’s self.
