Film screening: Spike Lee's Malcolm X - PART 2
Feb 18, 2015

Join the Monkey Wrench Community as well as the F4A Team for a special two-part screening of Spike Lee's Malcolm X. The film screening will be split up between Saturday, February 21st and Sunday, February 22nd, and will be shown at 6pm on both nights.

-----------

Spike Lee's film dramatizes key events in Malcolm X's life: his criminal career, his incarceration, his conversion to Islam, his ministry as a member of the Nation of Islam and his later falling out with the organization, his marriage to Betty X, his pilgrimage to Mecca and reevaluation of his views concerning whites, and his assassination on February 21, 1965. Defining childhood incidents, including his father's death, his mother's mental illness, and his experiences with racism are dramatized in flashbacks.

Malcolm X's screenplay, co-credited to Lee and Arnold Perl, is based largely on Alex Haley's 1965 book, The Autobiography of Malcolm X. Haley collaborated with Malcolm X on the book beginning in 1963 and completed it after Malcolm X's death.
