Malcolm Shabazz, activist and grandson of Malcolm X, was detained by the FBI while en route to Iran, Press TV reports. He was heading to Iran to attend to attend a conference on Hollywoodism.
Tehran hosted the third Hollywoodism International Conference, on the sidelines of the 31st Fajr International Film Festival in the Iranian capital Tehran on Sunday.
Many filmmakers, directors, actors, and movie critics as well as politicians and economists took part in the conference.
Mike Gravel, a former US Senator who attended the conference, condemned Hollywood’s role in imposing imperialistic views on the people of the world.
“Hollywood is just a tool of the American government and European governments to pursue their imperialistic views whether it is in economy…culture…or religion,” Gravel stated.
The first Hollywoodism and Cinema Conference was held in Iran in 2011. Source
