About this Unique Perspective of the
Trailblazing and Controversial Activist
A historic voice in the civil rights movement, Malcolm X was and continues to be a fascinating yet controversial figure. He gave voice to the anger and frustration that African Americans experienced during the tumultuous 1950s and 60s, gaining a reputation for his fiery rhetoric and spellbinding speeches. THE LOST TAPES: MALCOLM X relives his pivotal years with rarely seen footage and audio tapes, including never-before-seen footage of Nation of Islam rallies and recordings made at the Audubon Ballroom on the day of his assassination. The critically acclaimed Lost Tapes series relies solely on media reports from the time – with no interviews or re-enactments – allowing viewers to relive the power of Malcolm’s story as it unfolded.
The Lost Tapes: Malcolm X producer Tom Jennings is a multi-award-winning documentary filmmaker and journalist who has written, produced and directed more than 400 hours of programming for such networks as CBS, Discovery Channel, National Geographic Channel, Investigation Discovery, MSNBC, PBS, The Travel Channel, History Channel and 3NET.
