THE LOST TAPES: MALCOLM X
February 26, 2018  | By David Bianculli

Smithsonian, 8:00 p.m. ET

 
SEASON PREMIERE: Season 2 of the documentary series The Lost Tapes begins by looking at a civil rights leader who rose to prominence demanding change in the 1950s, and was assassinated in the 1960s. But the subject isn’t the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. – instead, it’s Malcolm X, the much more militant and less nonviolent activist who demanded better treatment from whites, and was very vocal in advocating for it. The Muslim minister was killed in 1965 – but before then, left behind a raft of speeches, recordings and TV news and talk-show appearances, some of which are collected here in this very absorbing, relatively rare look at the other major civil rights leader of the early 1960s. For a full review, see David Hinckley's All Along the Watchtower.
