James Baldwin was from the Martin L. King school of civil rights. That African-Americans needed to work with other Americans in order to get their freedom. Which is what separated him from Malcolm X who had more of a revolutionary approach to civil rights.The MLK approach to equal rights and equal rights enforcement was not only more successful and the better course to achieving equal constitutional rights enforcement under law, but it would’ve been the only one that could’ve been successful in this movement. Because it was inclusionary and t brought in not just African-Americans, but Caucasian, Latino, Jewish, the mainstream media that was mostly male Caucasian at this point. And all the different media outlets regardless of race. And members of Congress both Democrats and Republicans that was necessary to pass the civil rights laws of the 1960s.
