At a Glance

What do famous black men talk about when white folks aren’t watching and listening? One night in 1964 revolutionary Malcolm X, singer-songwriter Sam Cooke, athlete and actor Jim Brown, and fighter Cassius Clay supposedly came together in a small motel room in Miami to grapple with individual and institutionalized racism in America. No matter how many laws were enacted, political victories won, records sold, or yards gained on the gridiron; the issue was something that seemed like it would never go away. Adapted now into an Oscar nominated film, find out the true story of how these icons dealt with racism once that night was over.
