Martin Luther King vs Malcolm X:
Two Black Dreams


More than forty years after their deaths, Martin Luther King and Malcolm X remain two of the world’s most famous political activists. Awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in  October 1964, Martin Luther King was the world-renowned symbol of the American Civil Rights movement. At the same time, Malcolm X was revered as an icon in Africa, where heads of state lined up to receive him. They embody two very different dreams: two characters, two philosophies and visions for America, two political strategies that were continually opposed, publicized and orchestrated by contemporary media, notably through the burgeoning mass-media of radio and television.
