Synopsis by Sandra Brennan

This provocative documentary, filmed in black and white, and color, examines the allegations surrounding the black leader's demise in 1965. It focuses on Malcolm's political situation prior to the killing with a special emphasis upon the coalition he and Martin Luther King were trying to form. This new coalition, which had King helming the southern efforts and Malcolm organizing the north, was apparently infiltrated with by numerous undercover policeman and FBI agents with orders to keep it from coming together. Though the film leaves viewers with many unanswered questions, it is thought provoking. Included is archival footage.
