There is no longer a gate. Park in the parking lot and walk down the stairs at the end (through where the gate used to be), follow the paved walkway to the sign.

You will miss it if you are not looking for the sign as it's near a curve.

Signs: Malcolm X Born Here

A large, boldly lettered sign, not in the style of an official historical marker. The activist and assassinated civil rights leader may have to wait a few more years for that...
