Malcolm X and Muhammad Ali - March 1964.
In February 1964 the boxer formerly known as Cassius Clay was indoctrinated into the Islamic religion and changed his name to Muhammad Ali. He and Malcolm X became fast friends, but as X separated himself from Elijah Muhammad, Ali broke off his friendship from the political leader. Before the two could reconcile X was assassinated in the middle of a speech at the Audubon Ballroom in Harlem on February 21, 1965. Ali wrote in his autobiography:
Turning my back on Malcolm was one of the mistakes that I regret most in my life. I wish I’d been able to tell Malcolm I was sorry, that he was right about so many things. But he was killed before I got the chance… Malcolm and I were so close and had been through so much.
