Martin and Malcolm and America: A Dream Or a Nightmare
Cone contrasts the ideological visions of these two leaders during the civil rights movement, including how each man saw the future of blacks in America -- "I have a dream" versus "I see a nightmare" -- and how each man viewed the influence of white society on black culture -- from "we must love our white brothers" to "white man's heaven is a black man's hell." He finds surprising similarities, especially over a long period of time, when both King and X developed their philosophies from initial thoughts to full-fledged ideals.
