The meeting, called by the "Citizens Protest Rally Committee," started out as an inquest into the causes of violence that erupted on April 27, when a Black Muslim was shot and killed in front of a Black Muslim temple in a gun battle with police. Malcolm X was applauded when he addressed the audience at the church. Rev. J. Raymond Henderson, minister of 2nd Baptist, then spoke to calm the crowd and clarify that the church agreed to offer a place for the meeting, but encouraged attendees to not indulge in hate.
