“One Night in Miami” portrays one fictional night where icons Muhammad Ali, Malcolm X, Sam Cooke, and Jim Brown gather to discuss their roles in the civil rights movement in the 60s. Director Regina King adapts Kemp Powers’ 2013 stage play in her feature directorial debut. While some might see the predominantly black film as evidence of significant cultural change, actor Aldis Hodge doesn’t necessarily see it that way. KPCC’s John Horn talked virtually with Hodge following the Middleburg Film Festival, where he received the Spotlight Actor Award for his performance as professional football player Jim Brown.
