Sunday, January 07, 2018
Discuss the dynamic for change MLK and Malcom X created together.
Two of the most important voices in social change during the twentieth century, Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X, galvanized the country through their speaking, leadership, and visions of the future. Perhaps no one inspired mainstream Americans than King - and no one frightened them more than X. But what the two of them accomplished was far more than the sum of their individual parts. This program will look at the ideas and actions of these two figures, as well as the compelling dynamic created by the two of them, and the sea change this dynamic helped inspire.
