About One Night In Miami
Based on a play by Kemp Powers, One Night In Miami the movie is set on a historic night in 1964 when Cassius Clay celebrated winning the world heavyweight boxing champion title with three of his closest friends: singer Sam Cooke, activist Malcolm X, and football star Jim Brown. The drama, which was nominated for an Olivier Award in 2017 for best play by Kemp Powers, is now a feature film directed by Regina King. The movie reimagines the true story of what happens the night the four men celebrated Clay’s victory before he became known as Muhammad Ali.
