Malcolm X Film Festival Held in Belfast
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Malcolm X Movement held the first edition of the anti-imperialist Malcolm X Film Festival in Belfast, Northern Ireland, on Saturday.
Participants at the event included Moussa Ibrahim, a prominent figure in the anti-NATO Libyan Resistance, and Leila Khaled, a member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.
The first annual Malcolm X Film Festival takes place in seven cities across Britain, organized by the Malcolm X Movement (MXM), an anti-imperialist organization.
The festival is mainly focused on three aspects of Malcolm X's life, including "Civil Rights & Black Power", "Global Unity & Internationalism", and "Legacy, Continuities & Challenges", with related speeches and interviews from him, especially the last few years of his life.
Malcolm X was an American Muslim minister and a human rights activist known as a courageous advocate for the rights of blacks. He was a man who indicted white America in the harshest terms for its crimes against black Americans, and was assassinated in February 1965 at the age of 39.
