Work Site: Leo Kelly

One of the last places Malcolm worked in the Lansing/Mason area.

While Malcolm X was living in Mason, Michigan he found some job opportunities. One job that he had was working for Leo Kelly when he was living in different foster homes. There was not any information found as to what Malcolm’s job exactly was for Leo Kelly, but it was probably similar to the work he did for Dr. Sullivan, which was working as a houseman and chauffeur.

Leo Kelly was the owner of Kelly Monument, located at 318 Park Street in Mason. He lived with his family at 104 E. Oak Street when Malcolm was working for him. It is unclear if Malcolm was employed at the house, or at the Monument Company.
