As Black History Month comes to end we recommend Tonight’s Screening of LEADER: The Legacy of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. A David “Drizz” Rodriguez Production.
What is the state of Black leadership today?
The denial of civil rights, social problems, war, the prison system, police brutality, politics and the state of economics in communities of color demand an increased call to action.
Since the election of the first Black president in America and the national economic recession, many believe that the problems affecting the Black community continue to be pushed aside.
Leader examines the lives, legacies and messages of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X through the eyes of modern-day artists, activists, community leaders and elders, hoping to recharge the demand for change.
Hasan Salaam, Lah Tere of Rebel Diaz, M-1 of Dead Prez, Shaggy, Big Zoo of E.O.W., Immortal Technique, Amanda Diva, Inspectah Deck of Wu Tang Clan, and more.
