(CBS DETROIT) - Detroit activist Malik Shabazz is back in a rehabilitation center after being hospitalized earlier this week due to medical concerns. 

Shabazz, the leader of the New Black Panther Nation/Marcus Garvey Movement, started rehabilitation treatment in October after being on a respirator, receiving a heart pump implant and fighting an infection, according to Sam Riddle, the Shabazz Family Spokesperson. 

This comes after Shabazz suffered a massive heart attack on June 26. 

His family says they are grateful for the support from the community and the prayers during this time.
