In a powerful capture of African American icons, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X talk prior to presening lectures in New York City in 1964. Dr. King called for peaceful resistance while Malcolm X preached a forceful approach to ending segregation. History has remember Dr. King's method of peace as the more effective rallying cause but both men were likely the two strongest forces for the end of institutionalized racial segregation in America. Tragically both men were murdered before seeing their efforts come to fruition by the end of the decade.
