SEVEN SONGS FOR MALCOLM X is a British documentary film about the life of Malcolm X, the influential civil rights activist who was assassinated in 1965.
 
An homage to the inspirational African-American civil rights leader, SEVEN SONGS FOR MALCOLM X collects testimonies, eyewitness accounts, and dramatic reenactments to tell the life, legacy, loves, and losses of Malcolm X.
 
Featuring interviews with Malcolm’s widow Betty Shabazz, Spike Lee, and many others, SEVEN SONGS looks for the meaning behind the resurgence of interest in the man whose X always stood for the unknown.
“What makes Seven Songs so provocative is that Akomfrah shows respect for many different interpretations of Malcolm, suggesting that this revolutionary figure belongs to everybody.” – The Chicago Reader
