Malcolm X House — Boston

Malcolm X’s boyhood home was listed as endangered in 2012 due to a lack of funding. Owned by Malcolm X’s nephew and left vacant for 30 years, plans are now in the works to transform the house into living quarters for graduate students who are studying African-American history, social justice or civil rights — but more money is needed to make the preservation a reality.
