This week on The Debrief, Chris Glorioso talks with the activist who uncovered evidence that showed the two men convicted of killing civil rights leader Malcolm X were innocent - and two attorneys who helped clear the names of those two men, 50 years later.

Two men who were convicted in the 1965 assassination of Black civil rights leader Malcolm X were exonerated during a court hearing Thursday.

New York County Supreme Court Judge Ellen Biben granted the motion to dismiss the convictions of Muhammad Aziz and the late Khalil Islam, ending a half-century effort to clear their names.

"I regret that this court cannot undo the serious miscarriage of justice," Biben said, according to NBC News. "There can be no question that this is a case that cries out for fundamental justice."
