[Attallah Shabazz] said her father met with King before [Malcolm X]'s assassination and "realized they had much more in common as men, as humans, than people realized."
Supervisor Kenneth Hahn presented the scrolls to King and Shabazz and to play cast members Sherri Poitier, daughter of actor Sidney Poitier, and Gina Belafonte, daughter of entertainer Harry Belafonte. He said he knew King, but never met Malcolm X.
