Angela Bassett and Mary J. Blige are doing their part to make sure black history is remembered, particularly the history of two Civil Rights leaders: Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. 

The pair are starring in the new film Betty & Coretta, the story of the widows of Martin Luther King and Malcolm X, and how they carry on as single mothers after the assassination of their husbands.
