The life of Malcolm X is remembered at a special documentary screening, 53 years after his assasination.

In celebration of Black History Month, "Lost Tapes: Malcolm X" was shown at the National Black Theater in Harlem on Wednesday night.

The one hour documentary is presented entirely through rare footage of the civil rights leader.

Malcolm's daughter was there to watch.

"This is a day where we remember Malcolm, that we take his work, especially it's relevant today because we still haven't resolved those issues that he was seeking for resolution."

"The point of it is to try and take viewers back in time and make them experience what the story of Malcolm X was in as close to real time as possible."

NY1's own Cheryl Wills moderated a panel discussion on the film.

It debuts Monday night at 8 on the Smithsonian Channel.
