A rich selection of speeches, essays, and excerpts from Malcolm Xa€™s autobiography and Kinga€™s sermons shows the breadth and range of each mana€™s philosophy, demonstrating their differences, similarities, and evolution over time. Organized into six topical groups, the documents allow students to compare the leadersa€™ views on subjects including integration, the American dream, means of struggle, and opposing racial philosophies. An interpretive introductory essay, chronology, selected bibliography, document headnotes, and questions for consideration provide further pedagogical support.aquot; This volume presents the two leadersa€™ relationship to the civil rights movement beyond a simplified dualism.
