9780006276623: Martin and Malcolm and America: A Dream or a Nightmare?

"I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal" - Martin Luther King Jr. "No I'm not American. I'm one of the 22 million black people who are victims of Americanism...I don't see any American dream; I see an American nightmare!" - Malcolm X. This book tells the story of America's most notable black rights campaigners. They are often depicted as polar opposites: King, the apostle of love, and Malcolm, the hate-mongering demagogue. James H. Cone cuts through the superficial caricatures of Martin Luther King and Malcolm X to reveal two men whose visions were complementary and moving towards convergence. Other books by James H. Cone include "Black Theology and Black Power", "The Spirituals and the Blues: An Interpretation", "God of the Oppressed", "For my People: Black Theology and the Black Church", "My Soul Looks Back", "A Black Theology of Liberation" and (with Gayraud Wilmore) "Black Theology: A Documentary History". The book is to be packaged and published as a tie-in with the forthcoming film "Malcolm X", directed by Spike Lee.

Review:

White as well as black Americans are in the debt of James Cone, whose important book will revise and refocus the legacies of King and Malcolm X. --The New York Times Book Review
