Our coach is a strong believer that in order to be successful as a team, it is important to support each other like a family.

Although both men did an excellent job recruiting members as well as preaching their ideas I believe Malcolm X was superior due to the fact that he gained much of his support within a much shorter time period compared to Gandhi who gradually gained his followers. Both men reached a large collection of followers but Malcolm X’s language from different situations in his life helped accumulate a larger crowd making him more of a popular threat towards his opposition.

Interviewing a friend did take off the stress of making mistakes and we had a great time. The whole interview went well aside from taking too long to take notes.
