Malcolm X

malcolm It was a thursday night, got off from class earlier than expected. was riding in malé with nowhere to go. I stoped at a video store and thought to myself that i will purchase a DVD to watch, i was searching the new section and came across some good movie titles that i havent watched yet, but at the last moment they turned to be dull or a screen copy 😦 nothing in the new section had intrest to me, so i started skimming down the old section (remeber the saying “old is gold”), and came accross Danzel Washington’s collection. To be frank, im a huge fan of danzel’s work, i love his acting. So in this collection had three movies both of them i watched like 3 yers ago – one never heard of. This movie title was eyecatching and had a flavour to it. After reading the plot outline i was stunned… this is a movie based on a true story played by Danzel Washington which was released in 1992 to the american theaters – this movie had a huge impact on americans and accross the nations.

This is the story of Malcolm X…..

Biography of Malcolm X, the famous African American leader. Born Malcolm Little, his father (a minister) was killed by the Ku Klux Klan. He became a gangster, and while in jail discovered the Nation of Islam writings of Elijah Muhammad. He preaches the teachings when let out of jail, but later on goes on a pilgrimage to the city of Mecca, there he converts to the original Islamic religion and becomes a Sunni Muslim. He changes his name to El-Hajj Malik Al-Shabazz and stops his anti-white teachings, as he realises the error of his mistakes. He is later on assasinated and dies a Muslim Martyr.

so i suggest that if you have not watched this movie or never heard of malcolm x, then you should rent it or read his book….

the movie inspired me 🙂
