Description

Not to be confused with the Spike Lee biopic of the same name, this Academy Award-nominated documentary, adapted from Malcolm's landmark autobiography and celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, offers a stirring portrait of the legendary civil rights leader whose life has become a rallying cry for millions. Narrated by the great actors James Earl Jones and Ossie Davis, the film uses rich archival footage and Malcolm's own extraordinary writings to offer a vibrant forum for his fundamental ideas and an exceptional visual chronicle of how those ideas took shape. As timely and urgent today as it was on its release in 1972, this vivid and engrossing documentary remains essential viewing—a stunning vision of a singular man who sought social justice "by any means necessary."
