Between cross and crescent Christian and Muslim perspectives on Malcolm and Martin by Lewis V Baldwin ( Recording )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
[This book] details the interconnections between Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr. Special attention is given to their cultural roots and perspectives, their faith claims and traditions, and their visions of the ideal society and world. [The authors] reject two common tendencies - to reduce Malcolm and Martin to "misguided, angry Muslim imam" and "gentle, harmless Christian preacher" and also to treat the two as polar opposites engaged in a Manichaean conflict ... The authors provide insights into how Malcolm and Martin viewed each other, as well as how they viewed the family, women, children, and youth. They look into the historical forces underpinning the two leaders' religious and cultural perspectives, their approaches to religion and interfaith dialogue, and their efforts to relate the African-American freedom struggle to liberation movements across the globe.-Dust jacket
