4:05 am
a face to face as coming up next thank you very much for watching. freedom is not free. every day people die for freedom freedom is not free and in these two guys these two men died just so would we could have basic rights just so i could walk down a street. and not be arrested be able to you know do normal things like everybody else these were the watchman of the tatar they came and they received life when you told martin if you go out and speak to your people you go to dad martin still had the determination to do that for what he was going to say they told malcolm the same thing if you go out and speak to your people you're going to die but they had
4:06 am
determination to look death in the face and say i am going to speak in spite of that's right you can get into your true nature you look like you act like malcolm you mean you act like you ready to die for what you believe there are because you know it's you know great it calls them for you to be to the greatest human being that god placed on this plane that. some one hundred sixty four new york is in the grip of rioting clashes between white police and inhabitants of black neighborhoods have turned five ten years of struggle for civil rights have not brought an end to the injustices and racism suffered by black americans. boiled over after a police officers shot dead a black teenager. in harlem the
4:07 am
indignation and revolt was embodied by one man. x. in photographs he projects a role intensity to match his stated indignation at the abuse that american blacks have suffered. malcolm x. was the spokesman for the nation of islam the black muslim movement that preached supremacy of blacks over whites. at the start of the one nine hundred sixty s. the media were constructing a combat that stirred the civil rights debate malcolm x. versus martin luther king leader of the civil rights movement who was fighting against segregation in the southern states. martin luther king the hero of nonviolent resistance was a favorite target of markham acts white men who haven't much subsidized revenue. so the revenue can continue to think the negroes to be defense. martin luther king
4:08 am
never responded to malcolm's attacks he never agreed to debate with him the only time the ever met in washington the two men shook hands but barely spoke to each other. but one photo remains edged into memories an image that brings together the two opposing dreams of the black calls. hang on a let nobody turn me round to me round turn me round and go on and live nobody turn me round i'm gonna key bano walk again keep on walk on up to freedom. the civil rights movement was the singing movement. we were in the deep south and african-american people were church going people
4:09 am
and for the most part we're in christian churches one thing martin luther king brought me to was a preacher that is preaching a message he brought was we must take the church out of these four walls that's a direct quote from martin. martin luther king underwent his political baptism in alabama one of the most races states in the south where many whites continue to behave as if slavery had not been abolished a century before. in montgomery king organize a campaign to boycott the buses it was the start of a major struggle against laws that kept whites and blacks apart in public areas and the denied blacks their right to vote in our other have a right we have a duty to. call when you're set on and above and you're. worth it in bad because you have a duty to sit down and merely because you have
4:10 am
a right you have a duty to step back because the language is good and bad you have a bent. and if you let the right man get into you. about. him was workin to take down some. that prevented black people from ride in buses where they wanted to and to ride and train public transportation prevented them from voted in and all of those things that black people were paid fans from do in in the south but not in the know not blacks of our ways could vote but as malcolm said you may have the vote but you end up voting for nothing because they've already decided that you're not going to have any power but.
4:11 am
i moved to harlem in the summer of one nine hundred sixty two and i are moving in on a friday night saturday morning we got up instead of unpacking all of that we decided we were going to walk down the main street in harlem which is linux avenue which is now malcolm x. boulevard and she would just look at the community when we got down coast in an exam know we saw a crowd gathering so we said oh i was going go and he said to malcolm x. he's going to speak. we've heard of him you know the boogie man he was the boogie man and lead in violence and it shouldn't kill white folks and all that kind of stuff but that's mainly what we had heard so we said listen we've got to say it is time for you and me to figure out that it is time for you or me to hear for ourselves and it is time for you and me to fight for ourselves we don't need anybody today speaking or are being harassed or fighting for he spent a lot of time talking about the psychological attacks of white supremacy the
4:12 am
attacks on our minds and that to me was like completely i only when i begin to hear and i begin to cause to realize all the things that have been happening to me as a child growing up and other things that i now realize were a part of that site the movies you know that all of those things were part of that psychological attack to make us feel inferior one has to be alive then to collar person black kinda fifty's and sixty's was in in south and thing to did it was now command it's who i am most single handedly transformed their racial crouches snit's of black people. so that they no longer were ashamed of being black the honorable elijah muhammad is that the one stealing.
4:13 am
and we did steal he stopped us from gambling and is that the one line stealing runs rampant you know game only runs rampant in home oh title evils in places that care product immunity run record in a home. in harlem everyone knew the story of malcolm little the young hoodlum who discovered the nation of islam and its leader elijah mohammad one in prison it was muhammad who made malcolm x. the spokesperson for this black separatist movement with its racial vision of a world where black muslims would live apart from whites thanks to markham x. the nation of islam became popular in the ghettos of the northern states but organization was always one there was concern about offering an an option an alternative to black americans you know here's and here's something what we're talking about in terms of the goals and objectives we have as far cry which you hear you know you following christianity for example well as connected to the slave
4:14 am
trade that's connected to your slave holder you know he does not have your best interests in mind he's given you a religion it's that tamps down your your potential for violence and raising up. mr x. you have described the muslim movement as a religious organization and you've said that there are a great many misconceptions about your attitudes and stated views can we press for a very simple answer to one question do you hate all white people i don't think it's a fair question. headed to the right my head in the white man doesn't even come into my attitude he did mr mohammed teaches us to love our own kind and let the white man take care of himself for right man to days after kidnapping millions of black people from africa stripping them of all human characteristics and relegating them to the role of chattel cattle animals commodity merchandise that could be bought
4:15 am
and sold it will and then one hundred years since the emancipation crack approximation using every type of deceptive method to further us into slavery call second class citizenship i think that it would take a whole lot of nerve for white people today to ask negroes do they hate them ok map them spoke to the white media but he was not trying to convince the white media then what he was saying was true because he knew that they were going to destroy what he said. but ok no end of the hand and artist of the spoken word he worths try our way stranded get the attention of the media to use the media to support he is non violent approach to social change was after seeing the repeal of segregation laws on the alabama busing
4:16 am
us king pursued his action in other states. he emerged as the leader of the civil rights means. we do not want to wait fifty years for our rights we don't want to wait twenty five years for our right we don't want to wait ten years for our rights we want all of our rights we want them here and we welcome now. the young pastor became a celebrity the media hailed the effectiveness of his nonviolent approach king and his new tenants used television to effect in front of the cameras they sought to provoke the violence of the authorities demonstrators were told to show no hostility towards the adversary but to resist peaceful. method of hundreds systems is one of the most if not the most weapons.
4:17 am
in the cities of the north nonviolent resistance was a message that fell on deaf ears in new york malcolm x. famously visited a police station to denounce the violence i'm not satisfied with the fact that the police in this downtown area has punched one of our brothers in the mouth and the brother wasn't breaking any laws he was only selling papers and it would be dangerous for them to get the impression that we endorse martin luther king the last of your turn the other cheek malcolm represented the kind of attitude and political perspective of many of young black so-called militants and radicals coming out of urban areas in the north they have a different time attitude it was hard for them to swallow this notion of nonviolence you know so i go inside my head then retribution is coming i can't
4:18 am
see myself falling down on my knees and given any kind of extra advantage to my enemy malcolm says somebody hits you you send him to the cemetery the nonviolent strategy of modern new thick king jr from now come back was a week philosophy it was a philosophy of turn the other cheek it was a philosophy of not hidden back and now come comes from a black nationalist tradition that does not but the that you can can't show freedom yell seth respect yo get me to buy sit play the lead in somebody beat up on you and you not shy
4:19 am
to defeat in yo say that's why he malcolm emphasizes seth defense. but. emphasize nonviolence because if blacks had responded trying to defend them sad that would a brought down the pole least department down our own those demonstrators and whites would have loved to have the chance to kill black people in distress. so king and malcolm had that tension. i am happy. with you. will go down in the rear. the greatest demonstration read on and the history of. television played
4:20 am
a central role in the african american struggle for equality in one thousand nine hundred sixty three a series of events covered by the national networks reveal the scale of inequality in the south to millions of americans well they're right now in one thousand nine hundred sixty three was the year of martin luther king's try and his relationship with president kennedy who had been in power for two years was key to his strategy but it was this alliance which ween king and washington this idyllic picture of reconciliation between blacks and whites that provoked the ire of marco makes it all started in birmingham alabama in the spring of one nine hundred sixty three king and another pastor ralph abernathy were filmed being arrested for organizing an unauthorized demonstration the arrest was part of a strategy that king would use in future campaigns it was important that the cameras captured the unrest birmingham was a city that embodied
4:21 am
a southern racism where whites like to repeat the governor's slogan segregation now segregation tomorrow segregation forever can you believe that alabama would not and could not polisi it seth and that what he wanted to do was to show that so that the federal government would have to become involved and they're bad make a family a law that would over rod anything that any of that jim crow laws that's in birmingham alabama in one thousand nine hundred sixty three it was in prison where martin luther king wrote the text that encapsulated his struggle the letter from birmingham jail king wrote the purpose of a direct action program is to create a situation so. crisis pact that it will inevitably open the door to negotiation.
4:22 am
president kennedy intervened and king was soon free and a few days later king and his followers found a way into the national consciousness. one of his lieutenants suggests well why don't we have school children they don't have jobs they don't have mortgages. a lot of controversy about that within king's circle. but the decision is made and so we have hundreds and hundreds of children marching. and that's also the moment where the bull connor the public safety commissioner decides to bring out attack dogs and high powered fire hoses
4:23 am
vose pictures. go around the world. where we get these incredibly dramatic images. they are so powerful and here we have a story of two opposing forces one behaving brutally the other being victimized and so on you know for television this is
4:24 am
a spectacular story. malcolm x. is quoted in the media being very very critical about king and the movement allowing children to march and be arrested and be brutalized that was our main crucible berman here. i mean the fact that you hit you would you that children would be put in this and after what i understand even some of the king people kind of you know had a problem with that initially they misled they had a problem with interesting lee it's it's at that moment that the coverage of king starts to change because very shortly after this particular
4:25 am
campaign it it's now it's called the children's campaign very shortly after that the white power structure in birmingham basically collapses a green is to basically agrees to king's demands. the media coverage of king then very quickly changes he's not the militant anymore he is the hero two days after his victory over the local authorities martin luther king was the target of an attack several buildings were burned down by white extremists leading to riots in the black community in the face of the unrest john f. kennedy sent the national guard to the outskirts of birmingham in harlem markham xscape full voice to his anger we are not integration. and we believe that your little to try and mix with someone who doesn't love you well that doesn't mean that we in any any way condone what those friends are doing in birmingham alabama
4:26 am
people should know that it is no accident that of long balls were writing negro women negro babies a negro children kennedy said nothing it was only after the negro began to strike that. it was then it was then that kennedy called in the on the don't you'll be going by kennedy don't you people by the don't go down negro free just want to tell i thank you you get that good i get the. after the events of burning martin luther king and malcolm x. were interviewed a few days apart for a program about the race issue brings us an interpretation it was an opportunity to share their opposing vision was to put the black caucus malcolm x. has said of your philosophy that it plays into the hands of the right of practice
4:27 am
that they are happy when you talk about love for the oppressor because this is our . negro well i don't think of love as in this context as emotional bond i don't think of it as we all but i think the love of something strong and all the nice south and powerful i direct action and i think some of the criticisms of nonviolence and some of the critics fail to realize is that we are talking about something very strong and they can few. non-resistance with nonviolence is. king assumes that people are reading know that he is right about what he is sand so he is using the intellectual tradition of why it's in
4:28 am
order to make his point malcolm does not use the intellectual tradition of whites to make his point malcolm uses the experiences of black people in the ghetto the people that he's talking to reverend martin luther king. preaches a doctrine non violent insistence upon the right of the american negro what is your attitude a lot of white men who have been martin luther king subsidize revenue. so that revenue looking can continue to keep the negroes to be defenseless that's what you mean but not about the defense be defenseless and that they have one of the most cruel. that has ever taken the people into captivity that's the american way. you are making. when they're on line the main us response to drug use and the drug
4:29 am
trade over the last fifty years has been the criminal mind or if you join us on sat . in the morning and says i want to color the world in darkness this is a dialogue and that could be what's leading to some of the confusion i like about people saying they don't actually know what's going on join the colobus conversation at this time on al-jazeera when the news breaks members of the knesset israel's parliament setting a higher threshold for any future attempt to give up any part. and the story builds . up to the. president saying in our country it is not the other way when people need to be heard china has a serious shortage of women and a lot of. al-jazeera has teams on the ground to bring you more award winning documentary and live news on air and online.

4:32 am
after a while over remarks bannon made about trump and her son the recently published book fire and fury. the u.s. state department has praised the outcome of the first high level talks between north and south korea in more than two years the two nations agreed to hold military talks but pyongyang's nuclear ambitions are off the table. iran's supreme leader ayatollah ali khamenei has blamed western powers for the country's recent protests he says iran's enemies took advantage of economic problems to try to destabilize the government. police until his ears captain who fired tear gas at demonstrators who stormed a supermarket during an anti-government protest demonstrations against planned tax and price hikes began on monday with the rallies and more than ten towns heavy snow has trapped thirteen thousand tourists one of switzerland's most populous ski resorts the snow fall has stopped lifts and blocked ski runs and that train services were also halted some people trying to leave the resort had to be

4:34 am
to sit naked to why people are in a restaurant but man says. i mean that's not freedom sitting next to white people is not freedom said what's freedom is black people have in their own self-determination where they can buy their own restaurant and they don't have to worry about whites not serving and then. june eleventh one thousand nine hundred sixty three mocked a major victory for king and his movement president kennedy gave a televised address in which he presented the plight of southern blacks as a moral crisis affecting the whole country but are we to say that the world and much more importantly to each other that this is a land of the free except the negroes that we have no second class citizens except negroes and we have no class or caste system no ghettos no master
4:35 am
race except with respect and they go now the time has come to this nation it will fill its promise. events in birmingham and elsewhere so increased the crisis required it but no city or state or legislative body can prudently choose to ignore them. a few days later at the white house civil rights leaders submitted their plans to the kennedy administration for a major political rally in washington their aim was to draw attention to the injustices that continue to affect twenty million blacks the administration was afraid the unrest would spill over onto the streets of the nation's capital king reassured the white house and the event took place but on the terms set by kennedy .
4:36 am
on the day of the march the whole of america could follow proceedings lines on t.v. thanks to cameras set up along the route the three national networks gave wide coverage to the event which was the culmination of a decade of intense struggle for civil rights. what you see is an emphasis on black and white together. the march was about three quarters african-americans one quarter white but if you look at the coverage you would think it was almost fifty fifty so one way that television news was framing this monumental phenomenon is of blacks and whites coming together each see images of marchers and the emphasis is always on dignity so you see these framed
4:37 am
portraits of marchers. you know the t.v. cameras are always looking for well dressed marchers and that this was part of the organizing of the march where your best clothes right you're going to be seen by the nation so the impulse seems to be on the day of the march to portray this for television viewers as non-threatening and you know this is the ideal this is what integration looks like that to me was i was like a picnic it had almost like a picnic like atmosphere to i of this like totally unimpressed and although i was you know i had already accepted brother malcolm interpretation of it from listening to him speak but but. to me it was it was i was i when you look when you when i was
4:38 am
there and i will say to myself why would anyone object to this this is a great this is a great. for the kennedy administration makes it look as though they're doing something and something major is going on and i have a three. time liar. one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their yes but by the content of back eric i haven't i am was now you have two hundred fifty thousand people you know gathered in one place seemingly on the same page. see many there to idolize the kind of iconic value that dr king represented at the end and even the people who organized the march recognize that king would be the centerpiece you know a philip randolph in particular he knew
4:39 am
exactly what he was doing that dr king would come on and move that crowd is such a way that no other speaker in this country could do on average three in bed one day i was home it out about mom with that fish race. with the governor having him going if stripping with the words up into position another fictitious one day night that in alabama the little black boy was in fact would be able to join hands on the right board and right at the seven brothers not free. everything is i have a dream. i have a dream i have a dream and and to me the greatest lines from that speech that should be embedded into the minds of specially of young black folks is the full fathers of this
4:40 am
country gave us a promise every note and we have come here today to cash that check that to be best symbolically and in terms of an image created in the my that was a powerful statement. totally even though. we refuse to believe that the bank of justice is backed. by we refuse to believe that out i an official from the great oh of opportunity a bit late so we come to cash this check check that we'll give up the problem demand the riches of freedom and the security of stuff. from uncle max the march on washington was an event to be rejected in a famous speech he attacked what he calls the farce on washington.
4:41 am
the. kennedy in power during the march on washington is just like when you got some coffee it is too black. which means it's too strong what you do you didn't agree to create. it used to be hot it becomes cool. it used to be stronger becomes weak. it used to wake you up now what you just did. this is what they did with the march on washington they joined it became a problem of it took it over and there they took it over the last it's militancy. they seized me angry they seized me how. they seized me uncompromising why even seized me a mom she became a picnic a circus were nothing but a circus with clowns and all. they control it so sorry to lose
4:42 am
negroes what time to time. how does a clue. what does that. mean if you're in. the same. spirit it could make you have a brief equipment and then totally get out of town by slander. the march on washington sealed an alliance between king and kennedy. from now on it was king who had the ear of the white house. according to the media the two men were going to write american history but it would be written without kennedy. monday nov twenty fifth one thousand nine hundred sixty three america is in shock following kennedy's assassination as the nation watches his televised funeral king and the black cause have just lost their most powerful political ally but markham
4:43 am
x. upsets the mood of mourning. when kennedy is killed. because the grief for the nation was so intense any quote or sound bite that seems to be critical of kennedy. is just not going to be tolerated. malcolm x. second in command of the black muslim movement expressed joy at the assassination of president kennedy at a manhattan rally last sunday night and said that the killing of the president was an instance of the chickens coming home to roost he added and we quote being an old farm boy myself chickens coming home to roost never make me sad they always make me glad in chicago today a larger mohamad the leader of the any white muslin movement suspended malcolm x. and this about his state you know you little chickens out in the morning they go
4:44 am
around and they always come back the. what it was what chickens come in with basically words was the same as saying what you reap is what you sow and brother malcolm position was with the kennedy administration had allowed all of that violence to occur in birmingham and of the places that had not done very much about it but the way that the media of course takes up that quote is malcolm is saying kennedy deserved to be shot i personally wish he had not sit now because it was not true because i believe every word of it but i because it was it brad ammunition for his enemies both in the you know in the larger world and in the nation of islam to use it against after three months of silence imposed by elijah muhammad malcolm x. was finally banished from the nation of islam from now on he had to speak for
4:45 am
himself you consider yourself a militant. i compare myself malcolm. i think when he left the nation of islam in march of one nine hundred sixty four he felt it too was a great degree a kind of a liberal tory he felt liberated. in fact some point said something about the straight jacket is no longer on him now he can move and become more political because understand that the nation of islam tended to tamp down any kind of political expression to stay clear of that that's what god meant if i'm in trouble when he says something about timmy's assassination you know about the chickens coming home to roost got him into deep water so in an inept precipitated a number of other moves but he was already as far as i'm concerned he was beginning to step outside of that anyway he saw him saw of it in
4:46 am
a larger picture and making a greater contribution what will be the difference between your new movement and the nation of islam well the basic difference will be probably more flexible and it's not my intention to teach among those who are already most but to take mr mohammed's message out among non muslim so called the world or your work then with negro groups that are working for integration we won't be joining them now will they be joining us we will work together on any objective that we have and that will be for the good of the negro community. in washington martin luther king continued his political work with a group of senators sympathetic to his ideas he joined the debate on the civil rights draft bill initiated by kennedy the bill was the most progressive legislation yet regarding african americans. during
4:47 am
a press conference which he gave capitol hill king saw an unexpected visitor at the back of the room it was markham x. . malcolm an exit always wanted to meet king. and debate with me. but king our ways refuse to meet with. logic in a big car. he knew that if he met with malcolm support from the bike community would be almost so lemonade so king had to carry himself in such a way that the support which he gatt from the world why community would not dry up. after the conference the two men
4:48 am
met face to face. this encounter that king had always avoided it unfolded in front of the press and photographers. the meeting only lasted a minute but these images that capture them side by side like this photo smiling became a strong symbol of reconciliation between two opposing visions of the black cause those two people martin and mack symbol lads something that is in our our african-american each of us has a little bit of martin and a little bit america and us see malcolm represents that blackness santa us that sands there we are white even messing with us
4:49 am
we are the david now come represent. that fiat that fight. that refusal to let anybody define who we are can represent design are to get along with everybody and could imply it's our desire to want to create a society for all people defined by nonviolence love and care for our people and the society. on july second one thousand nine hundred sixty four the civil rights bill was signed at the white house what king saw come into being that day was a federal law that punished all racial discrimination in the u.s. he appeared alongside president johnson as a victorious hero at last this law was washington's response to king's dream.
4:50 am
a few days later america was caught up in another crisis following the acquittal of a policeman who had killed a black teenager riots broke out in new york for two days and nights violence reigned in the black neighborhoods king's lieutenants try to ease tensions but to no effect. one rioter was killed one hundred eighteen injured and nearly five hundred were arrested several police officers were also injured from moscow max it was a sign that blacks were no longer prepared to turn the other cheek the spiral of violence had begun sixteen hundred was a donkey. and a team six people asleep. in the eighteen hundred hour the nigger.
4:51 am
