Malcolm X



Malcolm X (1925–1965) was an American Muslim minister and civil rights activist. He was a spokesperson for the Nation of Islam until renouncing the organization in 1964. His most recognizable philosophy was that the Black community has the right to protect themselves and their freedoms by any means necessary, which was held in contrast to the Civil Rights Movement’s dominant theory of nonviolent resistance.
