Malcolm X: Make It Plain (Part I) by
Call Number: Africana Library Video 86
In Lansing, Michigan, he is Malcolm Little, son of an outspoken minister who preaches black pride. At one time president of his seventh grade class, Malcolm later becomes "Detroit Red," a hustler, streetwise and fast--but not fast enough to stay out of prison. From prison he emerges as Malcolm X, the fiery, eloquent spokesman for Elijah Muhammad's Nation of Islam. He brings the Nation into the spotlight on a controversial Mike Wallace television show, and astounds the Harlem community by leading the Harlem mosque in a confrontation with the New York police.
