Spike Lee’s ‘Malcolm X’ Will Be Added To Library Of Congress


The Library of Congress has selected Spike Lee’s 1992 biopic about Malcolm X 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.
