I've not read of Maclom X visiting Jamaica but I know he visited town called Smethwick, England in Feb 1965. He went to Marshall St where some Jamaican imigrants lived. He was concerned about the racist conditions under which the people lived bec Smethwick had a Black minority population and most of the white inhabitants supported the Labour Party - which in this town was notorious for racism against minority groups. There's an aritist, Donald Rodney who was a youth at the time Malcom X, visited his street, you could google his name for interest and see some of his works. Bless.
