NEW YORK -- In her mind, Ilyasah Shabazz's father is a montage of blurry black-and-white photographs and grainy newsreel. She did not know the man who some called a savior and some called a devil. She did not know the sound of his voice, the feel of his hair, the look of his hands. To find him for herself, she has to navigate through other people's memories. She must try to locate her family's truth in the shifting albums of history. Now Shabazz, who was 2 when her father, Malcolm X, was assassinated more than 37 years ago, is offering her stories to the world in an intimate look inside her family.

The daughter of slain black leader Malcolm X criticized the lack of multicultural education in U.S. schools during a speech in Annapolis last night and urged blacks to teach their children about their "rich heritage."More than 450 people heard Ilyasah Shabazz, one of the six daughters of Malcolm X and Betty Shabazz, speak at the 10th annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Awards Dinner at Buddy's Late Night. The dinner commemorates the slain civil rights leader on his birthday and honors those who are working to keep alive his dream of a color-blind society.

NEW YORK -- Betty Shabazz, widow of the slain African-American leader Malcolm X, was laid to rest yesterday afternoon with the same Sunni Muslim funeral service that marked his passing 32 years ago.Late yesterday afternoon, her casket was placed atop her husband's in a family grave at Ferncliff Cemetery in Ardsley, a suburb 20 miles north of New York.The outpouring of emotion for Dr. Shabazz seemed to surprise even her family and friends.For a week, the mourning united this fractious city, with the most extreme of Harlem's black nationalist leaders joining the city's Republican mayor in praising her as a civil rights voice and mother of six.Old friends of the family couldn't help but contrast the warm feelings for Dr. Shabazz with the mixed reaction after Malcolm X was gunned down in the Audubon Ballroom in February 1965.

In a room where "colored seated in rear" signs hung as reminders of segregation, the U.S. Postal Service unveiled a postage stamp honoring Malcolm X, once deemed "the angriest black man in America.""In my lifetime, I never thought I'd see the post office to honor Malcolm X," said Carl O. Snowden, an assistant to Anne Arundel County Executive Janet S. Owens and a civil rights activist. "The fact that they're doing it on Martin Luther King's birthday should speak volumes to people."About 70 people gathered on the exhibit floor of the Banneker-Douglass Museum in Annapolis, a 19th-century African Methodist Episcopal church founded by free blacks, to watch the unveiling.

PBS clears out 2 1/2 hours tonight for the documentary "Malcolm X: Make It Plain" (8 to 10:30, WMPT, Channel 22 and Channel 67) -- a programming decision viewers might greet with a "done that, seen that" sense of deja vu.They should think again, for "Make It Plain" vividly proves that for all his newfound celebrity, we are still in the process of discovering the essential Malcolm X.It's safe to say that a decade ago, eight out of 10 people on the street didn't...

Later he joins the mass migration of Southern blacks to Northern cities and moves to Detroit. He takes a succession of factory jobs until the Depression forces him into unemployment. Poverty makes him receptive to ideology that fixes blame for the predicament of urban blacks and offers radical change.
