The widows of Martin Luther King and Malcolm X and how they carry on as single mothers after the assassination of their husbands.
According to a Washing Post article, Ilyasah Shabazz stated that although she applauds Lifetime's efforts for recognizing an important era, she strongly emphasizes the film is "fiction." She says "My mother was not a weak, timid, insecure woman as portrayed," Shabazz said. "She was regal, compassionate, strong, loving, beautiful, resilient and well-educated. That is why the Delta Sigma Theta sororities named academies all across this country after her, so others could be inspired how to turn tragedy into triumph. If only Lifetime had consulted us, the sisters, maybe this would be more than fiction. I am not pointing my finger solely at them, but it must be our responsibility to ensure history is properly documented," Shabazz said.
