Successes And Failures Of Martin Luther King Jr And Malcolm X

122 Words1 Page
During the Black Civil Rights movement it was questionable what the best method was to end segregation and oppression. Throughout the many successes and failures of the time it is apparent a few of the biggest leaders were Martin Luther King jr. and Malcolm X. King took to a more peaceful protest stance to try and help integrate blacks and whites. On the other hand, Malcolm X believed white racism would never end, thus favoring separatism. Their successes and failures ultimately integrated whites and blacks, and possibly if they would have been able to work together King’s approach would have been more aggressive and to the point, while Malcolm X could have used his hostility to help with integration rather than separation.
