Malcolm X and Dr. Martin Luther King were civil rights leaders during the 1960s. They both wanted to improve the social position of african americans in the United States, but had different beliefs on how civil rights should be achieved. Both men were also deep in their faith, but followed different religions and paths. Dr. Martin Luther King wanted the people of color and the common white person to unite without any violence. King tried uniting people by speaking to the public and having peaceful protests. Malcolm X on the other hand took a more aggressive route to the civil rights movement. He believed that violence and segregation from whites was the way to achieving civil rights for the black community.

Dr. Martin Luther King was a firm believer that nonviolence was the best and more effective way to get more rights for the black community. By assembling sit-ins, marches, boycotts, and protest. King hoped to inspire the black community that by peacefully and legally protesting, they could build a country where all races are treated equally. He also gave strong and emotional speeches that used examples from the Bible to help support his ideas of working together to become more christians and closer to God.This shows that Martin Luther King believed that nonviolent protests was the right way to have racial justice and equality for all.
