Yeah, we ALL know who he is, what he looks like, etc. If you don’t, Google him. This post is dedicated to three of my favorite scenes in Spike Lee’s movie, Malcolm X. Yes, he was robbed of the Oscar, but I digress. I know the movie is from 1992, but it’s a GREAT movie to see and if possible read Malcolm’s autobiography. Here’s my favorite scenes.
“The first lesson a revolutionary must learn is that he is a doomed man”. -Huey P Newton
Scene 1: When he was first introduced to Islam while in prison and learning about tbeing free from the prison of his mind.
Scene 2: Just watch it…
Scene 3: I call this Malcolm’s “Now, I can see” scene, because I think that this time in his life his eyes were really opened and some things he was personally questioning were answered when he went to Mecca. Just my thoughts.
