One Night in Miami

Season 1, Ep. 83

Regina King's directorial debut One Night in Miami imagines a conversation between Malcolm X, Jim Brown, Sam Cooke and Cassius Clay... who will soon become Muhammad Ali. We talk on this episode about the expectations of Black stars who are often expected to be activists as well as celebrities. And, since we recorded this on the last night of the Trump presidency, we talk about how Black leaders have often been the ones to make America live up to its own stated principles.

We're joined by special guest Sam from the Sam Said It podcast — check out the podcast and follow him on @SamSaidItDFW.
