It is February 25, 1964. Cassius Clay has just defeated Sonny Liston to become heavyweight champion of the world. No celebration is planned, since no one thought he would actually win. No one except, his three not-yet-legendary friends: activist Malcolm X, singer Sam Cooke, and football player Jim Brown who throw a party for him in a small hotel. The next morning, Cassius would make an announcement that would shock the world. One Night In Miami... imagines what might have transpired on that very real, very fateful night in 1964. The civil rights struggle was ready to boil over and in less than a year, two of these friends would be dead. But on this night, the possibilities are endless.
