Description:

The paper discusses how Malcolm X emerged as a black leader in the late 1950s and was assassinated in 1965. The paper relates that his influence was considerable while he was alive and continued after his death. The paper discusses how some see Malcolm X as just as key as Martin Luther King in the development of the Civil Rights Movement, though they took different paths and sought different sorts of change much of the time. The paper points out that King was associated with non-violence and a search for equality, while Malcolm X was associated with a form of black nationalism and with a greater willingness to use violence to achieve that end, though the latter charge is sometimes applied unfairly.
