Martin Luther King Jr. vs. Malcolm X at the Theater - Key & Peele

Two amateur actors portraying major civil rights leaders battle for the affections of a community theater audience.

About Key & Peele:
Key & Peele showcases the fearless wit of stars Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele as the duo takes on everything from “Gremlins 2” to systemic racism. With an array of sketches as wide-reaching as they are cringingly accurate, the pair has created a bevy of classic characters, including Wendell, the players of the East/West Bowl and President Obama’s Anger Translator.

  • Although I support Malcolm's revolutionary spirit for a long period he was an Islamic fundamentalist, this was his official ideology for a long period before leaving it for general revolutionary ideology. He strangely believed that Arabs where black.

  • the fact that some people in the comments are putting malcom and martin against each other like they both didn’t change things in their own ways. this is why the world still has hate because everyone wants to put everyone against each other instead of just working together. not everything has to be a competition. not everything has to be a hateful rivalry. it’s so annoying that people still think like this and we’re literally in 2020.
