My coursework question is: within the context of the years of 1850's to 1960's what kind of stradgery; agressive or Peaceful led to greater change for black civil rights in America?

I was looking at Malcom X while in the Nation of Islam for the agressive side. Does anyone know what i could talk about relevant to this? Any events, speeches, ect?

Are you sure you got the dates right? If the question has specified 1850s to 1860s I'm not certain you would be able to talk about Malcolm X. Malcolm X is way out of that timeframe. Malcolm X was active in the 1950s.

Agressive- Black Panthers, Malcolm X and the Black Power Movement (call for black separatism). SNCC and CORE (used to be peaceful and inclusive but became radical following the failure at )

-Hate that produced hate (1959) documentary is a good resource

Peaceful- Martin Luther King and the SCLC (wanted to bring change through peaceful protest). NAACP (wanted change through legal case victories).

List of key events, demonstrations and achievements can be found here:

Were Black Panthers (/Black Power) aggressive? I thought they wanted separatism but didn't really cause any violence. They set up the youth clubs for Black Children, and had their own uniform/group (like cadets basically) but didn't attack anyone.

Yes I know, they also set up health clinics to helps patients with Sickle Cell disease and offered free schooling to black children in cities.

Their ideology and demands were more radical ("agressive" ) compared to MLK and the NAACP/ SCLC. See their 10 point programme.
