I made this video (photo-story mini lecture) to introduce a learning series three years ago. Dr. James Cone, one of America's best known architects of Black Liberation Theology, discusses the liberation strategies of Martin Luther King, Jr, and Malcolm X as they applied to their particular audiences; Dr. King to the South and Malcolm X to the North. Dr. Cone argues that Martin King's strategy of non-violent protest, while quasi-effective in an extremely racist and segregated South, was not effective in the North because the discourse and policy of "integration" was already superficially accepted by Northern white liberals. The "liberal" North found Dr. King's non-violent social change rhetoric to be more or less agreeable, even as the structures of racial discrimination continued to subject us (black people) to a brutal double-standard. Thus, Malcolm X's philosophy of Black Nationalism (separatist rather than integrationist) that allowed for self-defense epitomized by the slogan "by any means necessary" was more successful in the North because it more effectively confronted intrapersonal, socio-structural and institutional racism. Long story short: two great leaders with different approaches because of different situations, different audiences, but with the same ultimate goal-freedom, justice and equality for the masses of our people...
