It’s a war on words, Martin Luther king’s speech I have a dream compared to Malcolm X speech on the chickens come home to roost. Martin Luther king would reach out to his audience through the means of his optimism and emotion within his dream of equality for all men and women between races. Malcom X speech would reach his audience using a firm tone with a sense of realism being radical in his beliefs as he was in his solutions. During the time through the nineteen fifties and sixties where inequality was the issue with the black and white races two men worked towards making and impact in the united states. Both wanted to fix the segregation issues though both their means to do so where very different.
Thesis: In “The Autobiography of Malcolm X”, Malcolm X in his telling of his life to Alex Haley uncovers the theme of positive and negative environments unearthed by the interaction of African Americans and White Americans in his life and what those kinds of environments inherently produce. Annotated Bibliography Nelson, Emmanuel S. Ethnic American Literature: an Encyclopedia for Students. Greenwood, An Imprint of ABC-CLIO, LLC, 2015.This encyclopedia points out that the negative interaction he held with the white man as a young hustler was countered by these same experiences pushing Malcolm X to reclaim his “African identity”. This shows, as described by the cited work, what a man pushed by his negative interactions with the oppressive white men is willing to do to find his identity (i.e. through hustling).
Born Malcolm Little May 19th, 1925 in Omaha, Nebraska. 1952 is when he later changed his name to what we all know now as “Malcolm X”. Malcolm is a black activists whose voice started to be heard in the mid 1950s as a member of the nation of islam. But, unlike Martin Luther King jr, Rosa Parks, and others, I don’t think Malcolm X gets the recognition he deserves as a black man who wanted the best for his people in some of the darkest times in history. Loved, and inspired so many people.

When he joined the Nation of Islam, he changed his family name from “Little” to “X” as it was “a custom among Nation of Islam followers who considered their family names to have originated with white slaveholders” (1). Malcolm benefited the organization by being a spokesman and expanding the movement (“Malcolm X.” History. History Channel, n.d 1). He “became the minister of Temple No. 7 in Harlem and Temple No. 11 in Boston” (“Malcolm X Biography” 1). “An articulate public speaker, a charismatic personality, and an indefatigable organizer, Malcolm X expressed the pent-up anger, frustration, and bitterness of African Americans during the major phase of the Civil Rights Movement from 1955 to 1965”
1. W.E.B. DuBois wrote about racism in the United States. In what ways was he ahead of his time? In what ways is contemporary American Society still dealing with the same problems? W.E.B. DuBois (1868-1963) was very progressive for his time.
Robert F. Kennedy developed his argument about Martin Luther 's King 's assassination by giving details about somethings Martin Luther King Jr wanted to do for people. One thing is that he didn 't put Martin Luther King 's real speech, but he did an excellent thing by informing those who didn 't know about Martin 's assassination. For example one of the things he wanted to change was that all black people should have the same rights as all white people. I agree with this because no one should be treated differently everyone should be at a equal place. He had a dream that he would change all this cruelty for the best!
Someone’s identity not only shapes that individual, but also the friendships one makes. Andy and Red’s contradicting identities draw them towards each other and transform their lives forever through their unique friendship. When it comes to Andy’s identity in the movie he goes through a change, arguably a growth, during his time in prison. When he is first sentenced and brought to the prison, he is very quiet and keeps to himself. Even Red says when he first saw Andy, he did not think much of him.
His circumstances like being a poor Negro boy means he cannot get help so he learns by himself. A common idea of Baldwin is that he happens to write more significant essays rather than fictions or dramatic pieces (Mays). It is through his efforts that he decides to concentrate on his most common theme, “one's discovery of self-identity” which is recurring and broadcasted greatly in his short story “Sonny’s
In 1881 he would be the first leader of the Tuskegee Institute in Alabama. He became very popular with black politics and aided President Roosevelt and President Taft in making some very important decisions. He worked with white Philanthropists so they would donated money to build schools for people in the south so they were allowed to become educated at suitable schools. In 1895 Washington spoke at the Atlanta Address. Although, DuBois would call it the Atlanta Compromise because he believed Washington was negotiating with whites on how blacks treatment differed from whites.
The Nation Of Islam is an African American religious and political group, that at the time of Malcolm X spoke out against black oppression. Malcolm X came into contact with the group after several of his sibling wrote to him about the organization while he was in prison. After so much ridicule Malcolm began to agree with the ideas of the Nation, and eventually after his parole he joined the group. He quickly rose in rank and was soon giving speeches almost as frequently as Elijah Muhammad (the group 's founder and leader). However after his experience with the group and a journey to Mecca, Malcolm began developing his own opinions that were different and more peaceful than the Nation of Islam.
In 1957, Martin Luther King Jr and 60 other ministers founded the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. This would help to promote civil rights improvement. Martin met with religious leaders and civil rights leaders all over the country for race issues.

King then received a Nobel Peace Prize in 1964 for his nonviolent resistance to racial prejudice.
“The Hate that Hate Produced” was a documentary created about Malcom X and the Nation of Islam. He was affiliated with the Nation of Islam until 1964 when he believed that it had reached as far as the religion could go. One of Malcom X’s first incident with Civil Rights was Johnson Hilson. Hilson was an African American that had gotten between 2 officers beating another African American trying to break it up but ended up just getting beaten too.
His feelings of betrayal, and Muhammad 's anger over Malcolm 's insensitive comments on the assassination of president John F Kennedy, led him to leave the Nation of Islam. That same year, Malcolm X embarked on an extended trip through North Africa and the Middle East. The journey proved to be both a political and spiritual turning point in his life. He learned to place the American Civil Rights Movement within the context of a global anti-colonial struggle, embracing socialism and pan-Africanism. He also converted to the traditional Islam religion, and changed his name to "El-Hajj Malik
