“Now yeah The Beatles, they’re funny, but they ain’t no Sam Cooke.”

We look at another probable awards season heavyweight this week with One Night in Miami. This is the directorial debut of Oscar-winning actor Regina King, and it tells the story of 4 legends of Black history and the time they all hung out together. In 1964, after an historic boxing match, Cassius Clay met up with Jim Brown, Malcom X and Sam Cooke. The script by Kemp Powers imagines what these four might have talked about that evening. It is an incredible film filled with wonderful performances and timely conversations, and it comes highly recommended by almost everyone who sees it.

I am once again joined by the great Omaya Jones, film podcaster and programmer of the Arkansas Times film series.
