The Death of a Prophet
Starring: Morgan Freeman, Yolanda King
Director: Woody King, jr.
"El Hajj Malik El Shabazz" is the Muslim name Malcolm X took shortly before his mysterious assassination.
At that time he had become increasingly at odds with the philosophies of his former Muslim colleagues.
Considered one of the 20th Century's most charismatic and controversial civil rights leaders.
Malcolm X (born Malcolm Little in 1925) wielded immense power in influencing the way American society
perceived the role of the Black man during his short political life. A leader of the Black Nationalist
Movement by the age of 30, Malcolm X's name is synonymous with the struggle for Black Power and the onset
of a growing political consciousness among Black Americans as the 1950's came to a close.
This arresting docu-drama featuring Morgan Freeman (Driving Miss Daisy) and Yolanda King,
studies the final 24 hours of Malcolm X's extraordinary life.
