The Malcolm X & Dr. Betty Shabazz Memorial and Educational Center, [The Shabazz Center] "honors the lives and legacies of Malcolm X and Dr. Betty Shabazz by promoting human and civil rights through knowledge of the history and culture of the African Diaspora; education and self-empowerment; family values; and racial and religious reconciliation." [1]

"In 1995 Dr. Betty Shabazz set about to found an institution that would permit the courageous work of her late-husband El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz – Malcolm X to continue into the 21st Century. With support from the community Dr. Shabazz was able to negotiate an agreement between Columbia University and the Economic Development Corporation City of New York to retain up to 40% percent of original Audubon Ballroom. The Shabazz Center is a 501 c (3), established in 2005." [2]
