The story: Before his fateful appearance at the Audubon Ballroom, Malcolm X has requested a secret meeting with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who is also in New York.

Cautious at first, the two quickly fall into a spirited debate about their differing approaches to improving the lot of the black man in a predominantly white society.
