Death Of A Prophet :

After breaking ties with the Nation of Islam, Malcolm X became a man marked for death...and it was just a matter of time before his enemies closed in. Despite death threats and intimidation, Malcolm marched on - continuing to spread the word of equality and brotherhood right up until the moment of his brutal and untimely assassination. Highlighted by newsreel footage and interviews, this is the story of the last twenty-four hours of Malcolm X. Featuring the music of jazz percussionist Max Roach


Morgan Freeman stars as Malcolm X, the dynamic African-American activist who fought for racial equality in the turbulent 1960s. Death Of A Prophet portrays the final twenty-four hours of the civil rights leader's life, depicting the events as they unfolded that led to the controversial crusader's untimely demise on February 21, 1965. Costars include Sam Singleton and Yolanda King, whose father is the late, great Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. - a pioneer in the struggle for equality.
