Malcolm’s words on the media still hold true today and just like then, many people still don’t realize the power of media.
“The media’s the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that’s power. Because they control the minds of the masses.” – Malcolm X

BALTIMORE — The Library of Congress has selected Spike Lee’s 1992 biopic about Malcolm X and a 1959 film dramatization of a discussion between blacks and whites about jazz are among the images that will be preserved as part of its National Film Registry.
The 25 films selected this year include “Malcolm X,” which starred Denzel Washington as the civil rights leader, and “Cry of Jazz,” a 35-minute analysis of the origins of jazz – played out through black and white actors representing different points of view.
The Library of Congress announced the selections earlier today (Tues., Dec. 28). The goal of the registry, which began in 1989, isn’t to identify the best movies ever made, but to preserve films with artistic, cultural or historical significance.
”The Empire Strikes Back,” “Saturday Night Fever,” and “Airplane” will also join the registry this year.
