Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture presents Malcolm X: An Overwhelming Influence on the Black Power Movement
Next to Martin Luther King, Jr., his contemporary and nemesis Malcolm X was arguably the most controversial figure of the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s. Outspoken in his conviction that there is “no such thing as a non-violent revolution” and that African-Americans should fight the oppression of racism “by any means necessary,” including violence, Malcolm X stood openly opposed to Rev. King’s conciliatory methods.
Yet there is much more to Malcolm X’s story, including the radical change he underwent before his assassination in 1965. The full story of a crucial figure in Civil Rights history is poignantly captured in this acclaimed new film, directed by Dallas’ Thomas Muhammad and co-produced by Mr. Muhammad and Dallas’ Jorge Baldor.
