TaiEdwardFew replied to JulyDiaz's topic in Denzel Washington Is The Greatest Actor Of All Time PeriodI am a new listener and I loved this podcast. I want to discuss how history is used to make movies and what "sources" of history is used. Spike Lee pulled heavily from The Autobiography of Malcolm X as source material. Alex Haley and Malcolm X used that book as a way to craft a specific, often sanitized, narrative of Malcolm's life. Dr. Manning Marable published a well-researched biography of Malcolm X and explores the purpose of Haley's book. Marable's was well received by African American historians and hated by lots of Malcolmites.
