Louis Gossett Jr.
This is a documentary about a hero of mine. It is mostly snippets of his various speeches or the most salient points of his various speeches. The documentary is done chronologically so we see early Malcolm first ending with Malcolm, most sadly, being killed. A lot of the footage is footage I'd never seen before although a lot of the words I'd heard before. This was a documentary with minimal commentary although there was some speech overlaid by James Earl Jones which sounds to be from The Autobiography of Malcolm X. This documentary is an excellent audio/visual snap shot of Malcolm's evolution.
