There is no doubt about the fact that Malcolm X believes in dealing with the dilemma of this racial prejudice in an aggressive manner. While reflecting back at his childhood, it seems that his beliefs and ideas are inspired by Marcus Garvey since his father himself was pro-Garveyism. Hence, most of Malcolm’s views at the moment are also seen to be revolving around the theory of separatism. To those who would listen, he has been preaching the idea of all white men being devils and how the blacks need to unite together to cause a revolt against their oppressors. And it is the fruit of all these ideas
“Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!” This is the well-known quote displayed both on his gravestone and in the “I Have a Dream Speech” by Martin Luther King, one of the most influential Civil Rights activists of his time. Although he is widely praised as if he’s perfect, Martin often faced racism during his childhood. The racial discrimination, as well as his religious views, caused him to fight for equal rights.
His assassination did not fall short because he did everything he could during his lifetime for African Americans to have equal rights and was one of the most influential leaders towards black men. Nobody could’ve led an organization better towards freedom than he did. Malcolm X had an impact in his early life, great accomplishments, and his examples of leadership. A first thing to remember is how Malcolm X’s early life affected him and his family in many ways. “Malcolm X began to study the the teachings of Nation of Islam leader Elijah Muhammad.” When he started studying about the Nation of Islam, it turned his whole life around when he was in prison.
People consider him as one of the greatest political and spiritual leaders who struggled for black people and Muslims. Also, he had contributed to the spread of Islam in the society of the black people in United States. After his trace, radical black activists in the late 1960s, they had followed the movements on his teachings and speeches. For instance, the Black Power movement, the Black Arts Movement, and the widespread adoption of the slogan “Black is beautiful” are all rooted to the consciousness of Malcolm X. Like his revolutionary ideas, it had challenged civil right activists to overcome the oppressions in all
Martin Luther King Jr and Malcolm X were both powerful African American figures in history who spoke on the issue of discrimination against blacks and equal rights. While Martin Luther King Jr and Malcolm X were both advocates for African Americans and had similar goals, they preached opposing methods, ideas and beliefs. Martin Luther King, a christian man, passionately upheld the idea of seeking freedom through nonviolent actions, depicted in his speech ‘I have a Dream’. Malcolm X practiced ideas which were inspired by the Muslim teachings and condoned fighting back and ‘playing fire with fire’ which he portrays in “The Ballot or the Bullet” speech. Despite their disagreements, ultimately, Martin and Malcolm both aimed for freedom and equal rights in America but their beliefs, methods, and deliveries were different.
Leaders such as Martin Luther King prided themselves on nonviolent protests while others such as Malcolm X argued that violence was needed to truly reach equality. Anne Moody and Dave Dennis grew up in a time where racial tensions were at their peak. They witnessed the influence of Martin Luther King and Malcolm X and saw the different tactics each of the men believed would be the most successful in achieving racial equality. For Moody and Dennis it was very tempting to exercise violence in order to achieve their goal, but ultimately Martin Luther King’s nonviolent approach was more successful in creating a society with true racial equality. The nonviolent approach was more likely to not only achieve legal equality, but achieve a true sense of respect among

Johnson “suffered from a deep-rooted neediness, a desire to be liked by everyone, to outdo his predecessors, and to be known as the best president in American history.” To do so he used deception, charm and persuasion in order to gain support from the mass amounts of people with differing opinions. Achieving political consensus was something Johnson did well, utilizing his term as Senator to sharpen these skills. He always wanted the approval of his advisers and the American public, and he viewed criticisms of his policies as personal attacks which led him to double his resolve and intensify his efforts. A truly tenacious man Johnson’s modest
President Kennedy vs. President Johnson: Foreign and Domestic Policies President Kennedy was presidency was hard fought, even though he was roman catholic, he still managed to pull 51% of the votes.
