Welcome to this week’s The411.  As we celebrate Black History Month, I found the Ambassador of Belize, at first glance you may not recognize her but when she says her father’s name you can definitely see the resemblance.   I sat down one on one with Ambassador Shabazz.  I asked her for viewers not familiar with her name to explain who she is and Shabazz said “Well, I’m the oldest daughter to Malcolm X Shabazz and Dr. Betty Shabazz.”  We talked about her fond memories of her father.  We also talked about why she was in Louisville, KY, the relationship Malcolm X had with Louisville native Muhammad Ali and the projects she’s working on with the Muhammad Ali Center.
