Malcolm X Snapback

40.00

Malcolm X was an outspoken activist representing the Black Muslim faith. At a time when the civil rights movement led by Martin Luther King Jr.    advocated for the nonviolent pursuit of integration with white society, Malcolm X campaigned for blacks to defend themselves from white aggression “by any means necessary.” Whereas Martin Luther King Jr. came to prominence as a political revolutionary, Malcolm X was an influential cultural force encouraging African Americans to be proud of their African heritage. 

Malcolm aimed to help empower the disadvantaged black youth of America fighting for just treatment, and his impassioned discipline to eliminating racial hatred and its effects made him a revered intellectual throughout communities striving for change. In 1964 Malcolm broke from the Nation of Islam, and intending to start a black political organization, he reached out to other civil leaders of the time.  Malcolm X never swayed from his reactionary convictions, but he began to see value in the civil rights movement and came to find some common ground with Martin Luther King Jr. However, the power of the two’s potential alignment was never   realized after they were both assassinated just three years apart. Malcolm X was assassinated in 1965, but the great American thinker’s influence lives on in the ongoing pursuit of racial equality.
