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.
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.

He tried to tell people how badly they were being treated, because of their differences.
Just like Martin Luther King Jr. says: “a law that is out of harmony with the moral law is an unjust law.” (506). Marcus Dupree was a talented young running back and for the coaches to treat him inadequately just like any other of his teammates, because they were scared he might become egotistical because of his gift. While Martin Luther King Jr. says: “One who breaks an unjust law must do so openly, lovingly, and with a willingness to accept the penalty.” (507). In the sense of this connection between the documentary and the piece that Martin Luther King Jr. wrote, Barry Switzer had accepted the penalty of losing Marcus Dupree after a year. Switzer states that he regrets treating Marcus poorly because he could have been one of the best football players there has ever been.
community too”, which further promotes Malcolm X’s heroism because it represents him as wanting the best for all people, even non-blacks. This is the quality of a hero.

“We are here because of our love for democracy, because of our deep-seated belief that democracy transformed from thin paper to thick action, is the greatest form of government on Earth.” These famous words spoken by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. demonstrated the change in America and how our actions helped the civil rights movement in its success in accomplishing equality amongst all Americans.

The two most important leaders in the Civil Rights Movement were Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X, and they were respected by a large portion of the black community in America. Although, when it came the troubling issues of segregation, both of schools and in everyday activities, and the violent approach to fight racism v.s. the non violent approach, Martin Luther King Jr. was a better person to lead black americans. The first reason why black americans needed Martin Luther King Jr. over Malcolm X was MLK’s view on segregation.
