This ground-breaking and highly acclaimed work examines the two most influential African-American leaders of this century. While Martin Luther King, Jr. saw America as "essentially a dream...as yet unfulfilled", Malcolm X viewed America as a realized nightmare. James Cone cuts through superficial assessments of King and Malcolm as polar opposites to reveal two men whose visions were complementary and moving toward convergence. (Back cover).
