Initially, Green does not suppress his disapproval for the treatment of African Americans.

"(Atlanta Exposition Address, 1895) Casting down the bucket used to maintain stability and planting the roots which make them stronger in facing white supremacy.

“In Memphis on April 3, King addressed a rally; speaking of threats on his life, he urged followers to continue the nonviolent struggle no matter what happened to him” (Lincoln, C. Eric). The fact that Martin was willing to give up his life for his cause and his followers is incredible and showed a lot about his character. He was entirely dedicated to changing the way that African Americans were treated, and even if he couldn’t achieve this goal in his own lifetime, he wanted to leave a legacy that would spark the tenacity to eventually reach his goal. Not many heroes would sacrifice that much for what they believe in. “In June, King and 125,000 persons marched in a ‘Freedom Walk’ in Detroit.

Malcolm X stresses on the importance of understand how to vote for the proper candidate. The reason he stresses this in his speech so much is because he believes that this is the solution to ending the discrimination against African Americans. He addressed in this speech that most of the African American community don’t understand on how to vote properly and because of this they are getting miss treated from the very people they are voting to put in office.

He wanted blacks to know that even though they were not born in a golden cradle, they could also achieve what their hearts desired by working hard towards their goals. The last, but not least important objective he considered important was leadership. While delivering his “Prayer Pilgrimage” address he said there was “an urgent need for strong, courageous, and intelligent leadership from the Negro community.” King, Jr., realized that it would take well informed followers to help achieve racial equality.
