The two most iconic figures of the Black struggle in the United States are Martin Luther King, Jr., and Malcolm X. Their viewpoints and positions are often counterposed—Martin the pacifist, Malcolm advocating freedom “by any means necessary.” Both have, to one degree or another, been sanitized by official history—though Martin more than Malcolm. Both of these figures had something to teach, but they also evolved and learned from struggle, drawing, as they both neared the end of their lives cut short, deeply radical conclusions about the nature of society, of racism, of imperialism, and of capitalism. This talk will explore their similarities, differences, contributions, and legacy.
