- Profiles Malcolm X, who emerged from prison after serving time for hustling as a fiery, eloquent spokesman for Elijah Mohammed's Nation of Islam. Describes Malcolm X's militant gospel of self-defense and nationalism -- shocking to many whites and disturbing to many African-Americans -- and his break from the Nation of Islam and subsequent pilgrimage to Mecca, after which he took the name of El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz. Malcolm X is revealed as a man who became an internationally recognized leader and advocate for oppressed peoples by the time he was assassinated in Harlem in 1965.
