WHEN TARIQ ALI MET MALCOLM X

A one-hour documentary focusing on a short period in Britain in 1964/65 when America's Malcolm X met and befriended
the radical British Marxist, Tariq Ali. The documentary centres on Malcolm's visit to the UK where he met Tariq Ali, the radical British Marxist, at the University of Oxford Union's end-of-term "Queen and Country" debate, three months before Malcolm was assassinated in New York. Tariq Ali retraces their footsteps of 53 years ago and, aided by archive film from the time, puts into context Malcolm X's British legacy and asks what he means to young British blacks today.
