Public Humanities at Yale and the Yale Film Archive present Spike Lee’s Malcolm X: A 30th Anniversary Screening.

Malcolm X occupies a complicated space in American public memory. With a life marked by as much reinvention as his, Malcolm X has become a lot of different things to a lot of different people. Join us as we take the opportunity to examine the life and legacy of the late civil rights icon—as well as Spike Lee’s own intervention in that legacy.

This in-person event will consist of a full-length screening of Malcolm X projected from a 35mm print from the Yale Film Archive, followed by a panel discussion featuring Wesley Morris, critic-at-large for The New York Times, in conversation with Yale University’s Crystal Feimster, Associate Professor of African American Studies, History, and American Studies, and Iman AbdoulKarim, a graduate student in Religious Studies.

Saturday, April 9 – 1:00pm to 6:00pm
Doors open at 12:30pm
