The Sword and the Shield : The Revolutionary Lives of Malcom X and Martin Luther King Jr.

By: Peniel E. Joseph 

Pages: 384

Binding: Hardcover

To most, Malcom X and Martin Luther King Jr. represent contrasting ideals : self-defense vs. nonviolence, black power vs. civil rights, the sword vs. the shield. This book upends the misconceptions and reveals a nuanced portrait of two men who, despite different backgrounds, inspired and pushed each other throughout their adult lives. This is a strikingly revisionist biography, not just about Malcom and Martin, but also of the movement and era it came to define.
