Although numerous activists made important contributions to the civil rights movement, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X are two figures that have received significant attention, and both figures have had a national and international impact on movements against oppression. This course examines the speeches, sermons, and writings of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X. Attention is devoted to their overlapping lives, thought, and discourse and to how their religiosity influenced their views on race, economics, democracy, revolution, internationalism, gender, and more.
