The house site is historically important for its association with Malcolm X, originally named Malcolm Little, born in Omaha on May 19, 1925. Malcolm X was known for his outspoken views on racial segregation, advocating a "back to Africa" movement, and later promoting social and economic self-sufficiency for blacks. He was assassinated in New York City on February 21, 1965. Malcolm X contributed to an awareness in many blacks which helped foster the birth of the black nationalist movement of the late 1960s.
