  • Well, this didn't happen exactly as it's depicted in the film.

  • Malcolm will be criticized for speaking out against the honorable Elijah Muhammed, causing a rift between the two, but not until years later.

  • Malcolm left the nation shortly before he was murdered, while Ali remained a loyal follower of Elijah Muhammed.

  • For years after Aaliyah said to have regretted never patching things up with Malcolm before his death.

  • Regina King's decision to bend the truth of the actual timeline and include this in the film acts as a final moment of conflict and a telling not of the discord to come.

  • E.

  • I must be the greatest.
