What went down when civil rights activist Malcolm X, boxing champ Muhammad Ali (then still Cassius Clay), football star Jim Brown and singing sensation Sam Cooke all got together in a hotel room on February 25, 1964?
See one possible scenario starting tomorrow, January 15, as Amazon Prime premieres One Night in Miami, Brian Kemp’s adaptation of his 2013 stage play. Directed by Oscar-winning actress Regina King (If Beale Street Could Talk), the film stars Kingsley Ben-Adir as Malcolm X, Eli Goree as Ali, Aldis Hodge as Brown and Leslie Odom, Jr. as Cooke.
Do you think their conversations on racial injustice, religion, and personal responsibility will still resonate nearly 60 years later?
