Malcom X

During the 1960s civil rights protest took place. In particular two civil rights leaders stood out the mos,. Malcome X and Martian Luther King Jr. Although both fought for black freedom, each had different theories of getting it.

Malcom X was born in Omaha, Nebraska 1925. While growing up Malcome moved to many of the United States major cities, a main effect of this was turning little Malcom into a hardened criminal. At the age of 20, he was arrested for burglary and served seven years in prison. While in prison Malcom found that the white society was oppressive to the black people. From then on Malcom started to preach for black power, he spoke at ?non violent movements? saying he was becoming impatient because equity wasn?t coming fast enough. Malcom disagreed with all the early race protest saying they didn?t spread the black word out fast enough. In February 1965 Malcom X was shot dead in New York City during a rally.

Martian Luther King Jr as Malcom X set his sights on stopping segregation that had been around for ages. Threw Matians life he felt the full fury of racism
