Bio - King

Martin Luther King, Jr life was from January 15, 1929-April 4, 1968 when he was assassinated by James Earl Ray, three years later than Malcolm X

Thoughts on Integration - King

Dr. King said "Let the white men control theirs, let us control ours-that's all we're saying." He believed we should not separate someone based on skin. That one day every one black or white could hold hands and live in harmony!

Goals - King

His goals were to get equality for African Americans "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character." his path to achieve this goal was nonviolence protest "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."

Why was King more repected than Malcolm X

Because he didn't want revenge on the white man he just wanted peace and equal rights unlike Malcolm X, who just wanted a fight! This is why there is no national Malcolm X day and there is a MLK Day
  1. Monday, January 19

Bio - Malcom X

Malcolm X was born Malcolm Little on May 19, 1925 in Omaha, Nebraska

how he was killed- Malcolm's enemies were successful in their ruthless attempt. At a speaking engagement in the Manhattan's Audubon Ballroom on February 21, 1965, three gunmen rushed Malcolm onstage. They shot him 15 times at close range. Malcom X was pronounced dead on arrival at New York's Columbia Presbyterian Hospital.

Thoughts on Intergration

Malcom X didnt think the same way as MLK J.R th thought that the white men was evil he wanted to kill all of them. "I am for violence if non-violence means we continue postponing a solution to the American black man's problem just to avoid violene."


Malcom X's goals were to get equal rights for the white man and the black man, with whatever means necesary. (even killing)

Why Was Malcom X Less Effective Than M.L.K J.R

In my own opinion i think Malcom X was better than M.L.K J.R because he would do anything to get equal rights unlike M.L.K J.R that would only do peaceful protests.
