Martin Luther King and Malcolm X Debate

“America is the first country… that can actually have a bloodless revolution.”

Malcolm X

“The revolution has always been in the hands of the young. The young always inherit the revolution.”

~Huey Newton

“Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That’s what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.”

~Bobby Seale

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”

― Martin Luther King Jr.

“If you’re not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing.”

― Malcolm X

“There comes a time when silence is betrayal.”

― Martin Luther King Jr.
Nina Simone - Everything Must Change

“And when I speak, I don’t speak as a Democrat. Or a Republican. Nor an American. I speak as a victim of America’s so-called democracy. You and I have never seen democracy – all we’ve seen is hypocrisy. When we open our eyes today and look around America, we see America not through the eyes of someone who has enjoyed the fruits of Americanism. We see America through the eyes of someone who has been the victim of Americanism. We don’t see any American dream. We’ve experienced only the American nightmare.”

― Malcolm X

"Spike Lee's "Malcolm X" is one of the great screen biographies, celebrating the whole sweep
of an American life that began in sorrow and bottomed out on the streets and in prison before
its hero reinvented himself.

Denzel Washington stands at the center of the film, in a performance of enormous breadth.
He never seems to be trying for an effect, and yet he is always convincing; he seems as natural
in an early scene, clowning through a railroad club car with ham sandwiches, as in a later one,
holding audiences spellbound on streetcorners, in churches, on television and at Harvard.

He is as persuasive early in the film, wearing a zoot suit and prowling the nightclubs of Harlem,
as later, disappearing into a throng of pilgrims to Mecca.

Washington is a congenial, attractive actor, and so it is especially effective to see how he shows
the anger in Malcolm, the unbending dogmatic side....

Spike Lee is not only one of the best filmmakers in America, but one of the most crucially important,
because his films address the central subject of race. He doesn't use sentimentality or political cliches,
but shows how his characters live, and why.

-Roger Elbert- read entire review here:

A tribute to the controversial black activist and leader of the struggle for black liberation.
He hit bottom during his imprisonment in the '50s, he became a Black Muslim and then a
leader in the Nation of Islam. His assassination in 1965 left a legacy of self-determination
and racial pride.
Director: Spike Lee
