Martin Luther King was known for being an eloquent public speaker, and he taught people about the meaning of freedom, equality, peace, and, most of all, love. Malcolm X, on the other hand, was not as peaceful with his delivery, and he was very much against the white race.
Martin Luther King had a good upbringing, as he was raised by decent people who taught him right from wrong. Malcolm X, on the other hand, had a tough life. He witnessed his house being burned down, his father was killed, and his mother went into a psychiatric institution as a result.
Martin Luther King was educated in good schools, while Malcolm X was self -taught with minimal experience in the academic world. There is a national holiday bearing Martin Luther King’s name, while Malcolm X may be remembered but is seldom mentioned.
