5.0 out of 5 stars Raw and Powerful May 5, 2008
This fascinating DVD deals with Malcolm X's assassination and the role of both the Nation of Islam and the FBI in this. Min. Farrakhan's remarks against Malcolm (which he later regretted) earlier in the DVD are indeed shocking, and the recollections of Malcolm's old friends such as Brother Benjamin, historian John Henrik Clarke (shortly before his death) and Charles Kenyatta add a warm, human touch to the proceedings. Very educational for those interested in Malcolm and his effect on people.

5.0 out of 5 stars Honor Malcolm's Struggle September 13, 2008
Let us be clear about one thing from the start, whatever contradictions Malcolm X's brand of black nationalism entailed, whatever shortcomings he had as an emerging political leader, whatever mistakes he made along the way as he groped for a solution to the seemingly intractable fight for black freedom he stood, and continues to stand, head and shoulders above any black leader thrown up in America in the 20th century. Only Frederick Douglass in the 19th century compares with him in stature.

No attempts by latter-day historians or politicians to assimilate Malcolm along with other leaders of the civil rights struggle in this country, notably Dr. Martin Luther King, as part of the same continuum of leadership are false and dishonest to all parties. That proposition is at least implied in this well-done documentary about the trials and tribulations of Malcolm X concerning a possible alliance with those reformist forces and mars what is otherwise a very good visual introduction to this charismatic man to new generations of those sympathetic to the real black liberation struggle.

Malcolm X, as a minister of the Black Muslims and after his break from that organization, stood in opposition to the official liberal non-violence strategy of that reformist leadership. His term "Uncle Toms" fully applies to their stance. And, in turn, that liberal black misleadership and its various hangers-on in the liberal establishment hated him when he spoke the truth about their role in white-controlled bourgeois Democratic Party politics. The "chickens were coming home to roost", indeed!

The other axis of this film- who killed Malcolm, including the possibility that the infamous Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam was involved gets a full workout here.

5.0 out of 5 stars special/genuine/hard loss September 14, 2014
Must-see, if you're interested in the man at all. Became a hero of mine ever since reading Alex Haley's The Autobiography of Malcolm X more than twenty years ago. He may have started out as a criminal & hater of whites, but eventually realized that the only true way to go is to be a uniter. Turned his life around. Powerful speaker with charisma to spare. Who knows where he would have ended up if those who envied & resented him had not silenced this great man.
I wept towards the end. Could not be helped. You would have to be pretty tough inside not to be moved by his story & how it ended.
