One Night in Miami… is a 2020 American drama film directed by Regina King in her feature film directorial debut with a screenplay by Kemp Powers based on his 2013 stage play of the same name. The film is a fictionalized account of a February 1964 meeting of Malcolm X, Muhammad Ali, Jim Brown, and Sam Cooke in a room at the Hampton House, celebrating Ali’s surprise title win over Sonny Liston. It stars Kingsley Ben-Adir, Eli Goree, Aldis Hodge, and Leslie Odom Jr. in the lead roles, with Lance Reddick, Joaquina Kalukango, Nicolette Robinson, and Beau Bridges in supporting roles.



In 1963, Cassius Clay nearly loses a boxing match to Henry Cooper at Wembley Stadium in London. At the Copacabana in New York City, soul singer Sam Cooke suffers through a performance in front of a cold, all-white audience. Returning home to Georgia, NFL player Jim Brown is received by family friend Mr. Carlton on a vast plantation. Carlton ladles praise on “the great Jim Brown,” but when Brown offers to help Carlton move some furniture, Carlton reminds Brown that “you know we don’t allow niggers in the house.” Elsewhere, Malcolm X returns home and discusses his plans to leave the Nation of Islam with his wife, Betty.
