Malcolm X rose from the streets to become one of the most influential leaders of the civil rights movement. His adventure-filled path to public service is detailed in the documentary Malcolm X: Make It Plain. Malcolm X first connected with the Nation of Islam while in prison. His subsequent duties within the organization led to a role as spokesperson and philosopher. While his comments were often controversial and always impassioned, he brought much attention to the struggle for African-Americans' equal treatment under the law. The release features interviews with the many famous faces that populated the late leader's life including Maya Angelou, Alex Haley, Ossie Davis, and Malcolm X's own family. Malcolm X: Make It Plain is narrated by Alfre Woodard.
