The study of African Americans has been a prominent point of interest since the arrival of blacks in what was to become the United States. Since their arrival to America via the Atlantic Trade, blacks in America have been faced with incredible and often inconceivable challenges in every aspect of life, from basic human rights to civil liberties to social equalities. Throughout those years, there have been varying responses to these deliberate injustices. Notable in recent times are the varying approaches to protestation, often crystallized in reference to Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X. Each of the two forms of militant and non-violent protestation assumed by Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr., respectively, can be traced back to the mid 1860's. Therefore this paper will focus on these two forms of African American resistance to white supremacy during this time. In doing so, this paper will illustrate that while the struggle for equality was an unintentionally collaborative effort between the two forms of protests; the non-violent approach was ultimately the most effective.
