Discuss the development of the Black Freedom Struggle. What were some key moments and people? Who does the documentary focus on? What is the argument in the King or Malcolm X sources? Who are they appealing to? In the secondary source material, Dagbovie and Joseph discuss two figures involved in the self-defense wing of the Black Freedom Struggle. How does self-defense emerge? How does it figure in Williams or Carmichael’s lives?
