This is a short low budget, low quality film with far too little Malcolm X.

Also, in the first segment the film editor intercuts outtakes from Hollywood films with Malcolm X. This detracts from rather than enhances Malcolm's thoughts and presentation.

The last six minutes do not even feature Malcolm. It is a segment from a longer 1963 interview by Kenneth Clark of James Baldwin. It's interesting and worth watching but it's not Malcolm X speaking.

Finally, it's too bad the film features only the anti-White racist Malcolm X and not the man who grew to say and believe this: "I believe that there will be a clash between those who want freedom, justice, and equality for everyone and those who want to continue the systems of exploitation. I believe that there will be that kind of clash, but I don't think that it will be based upon the color of the skin ..."*

*Al-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz a.k.a. Malcolm X, Toronto, January 19, 1965.
