Plot summary

What is One Night in Miami... movie plot?

Here is a short review of "One Night in Miami..." movie plot summary.

In 1963, Cassius Clay (Eli Goree) nearly loses a boxing match to Henry Cooper at Wembley Stadium in London. At the Copacabana in New York City, soul singer Sam Cooke (Leslie Odom Jr.) suffers through a performance in front of a cold, all-white audience. Returning home to Georgia, NFL player Jim Brown (Aldis Hodge) is received by family friend Mr. Carlton (Beau Bridges) 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 (Kingsley Ben-Adir) returns home and discusses his plans to leave the Nation of Islam with his wife, Betty.
On February 25, 1964, the men are all in Miami for Clay's title bout against Sonny Liston (Aaron D. Alexander). Malcolm X meets with Clay in a hotel room before the fight, and the two pray in a traditional Islamic fashion. That night, Brown is a ringside commentator and Cooke and Malcolm X are in the crowd as Clay upsets Liston, making him the world heavyweight champion.
Afterward, Malcolm X invites the other three men to his motel room. Their hopes of a party are dashed when Malcolm X makes it clear they are the only ones he invited. He wants to spend some time reflecting on their accomplishments, but tension between him and Cooke arises. Malcolm X thinks Cooke has sold out the black community by pandering to white audiences, and Cooke refuses to feel guilty for his success. Clay informs the men of his plans to announce his conversion to the Nation of Islam, causing more tension. Brown discusses his plans to become a film actor, and wonders if it will go smoothly.
