Built by movie mogul William Fox in 1912 for large events, the Audubon Ballroom became best known as the place Black Muslim leader, Malcolm X, was assassinated while giving a speech to the Organization of Afro-American Unity. Today, in his honor, the building houses the Malcolm X and Dr. Betty Shabazz Memorial and Educational Center. A life-sized statue of Malcolm X stands in the lobby.
