@JoyceyWrote: You are correct that Malcolm X renounced something, but it was the American "Nation of Islam" that he renounced, after which he became a Sunni Muslim. He wrote a letter to President Truman in 1950 discussing his support of communism among other things and there is no record of him publically or privately renouncing that view. It is believed that he was assassinated by the Nation of Islam, as his public denunciation of the group and its leader for corruption and immorality caused great embarassment. Three members of the group were charged and convicted of his murder.
