Is 'Malcolm X' the Best Black Film of All Time?

Yes, according to your votes in the March Movie Madness bracket challenge! Check out its path to victory.


(The Root) -- In the end, Coming to America didn't stand a chance. Malcolm X, Spike Lee's critically acclaimed biopic, beat the beloved Eddie Murphy comedy with nearly 70 percent of the vote to win our March Movie Madness challenge, which started out last month with 64 films that voters slowly whittled down to one.
