Compare and contrast the political ideologies of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X
You have two options. Choose only one.
Compare and contrast the political ideologies of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X (as exemplified in the works we are reading and any others you choose to look up). How do they each confront and challenge the “precept of inferiority,” as described by Leon Higgenbotham?
The “Black Arts Era” section in the anthology will also be helpful for this as it gives some of the context of the Civil Rights movement.
Compare and contrast two or more of the poets we read this week (Hayden, Walker, and Brooks). You may discuss them in terms of the “Realism” section of our anthology. Compare and contrast their representations of black life: what images and themes do you see these poets exploring?
If relevant, you may discuss them in terms of Hayes’ article “Black Expressive Culture” and/or the selections from Richard Wright’s “Blueprint for Negro Writing.”
