Film and Mind Online: One Night In Miami

March 26, 2021, 6:30 - 10:15 PM

Join NCP as we take our Film and Mind series online!

images/One_Night_in_Miami.jpgThe Regina King film One Night in Miami (2020, Amazon) (1hr, 54 min) depicts a fictional gathering of  Cassius Clay, Malcolm X, Jim Brown, and Sam Cooke in 1964. The film has its cinematic weaknesses, but the acting is vivid and the dialogue punches up to its weight. The film is both comfortably familiar and fresh in its presentation of four leading edges of "the Negro" group mind of 56 years ago, and reflects issues still edgy today.
