Malcolm X (1992) 

From Spike Lee's fight to helm the film (over a white director) to the Black celebrity financing of the finished product (over the studio's denial of funds), Malcolm X, starring Denzel Washington, became a cultural touchstone. In 2010, the Library of Congress selected the film to be a part of its National Film Registry.

On the 20th anniversary of this historic work, here's a look at the cast who resurrected Malcolm for a new generation.
