The River Niger An all-star cast performs in this film adaptation of the Tony Award winning off-Broadway hit play. In this gripping, intimate look at life in the ghetto, Johnny Williams (James Earl Jones) is a house painter who moonlights as a poet, struggling to financially and emotionally support his cancer-ridden wife Mattie (Cicely Tyson). But times are tough and the poverty-troubled streets are even tougher, and it takes every ounce of Johnny's love and courage for the couple to make it through their strife, finding redemption in The River Niger. Death Of A Prophet Morgan Freeman stars as Malcolm X, the dynamic African-American activist who fought for racial equality in the turbulent 1960s. Death Of A Prophet portrays the final twenty-four hours of the civil rights leader's life, depicting the events as they unfolded that led to the controversial crusader's untimely demise on February 21, 1965. Costars include Sam Singleton and Yolanda King, whose father is the late, great Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. - a pioneer in the struggle for equality.
