Even up to the present day, there has been a constant struggle for basic Civil Rights for minorities in the United States of America aka. “The Land of the Free” for many years. Malcolm X, a very well-known Muslim Minister, was a powerful leader during the Civil Rights Movement. He gave a speech titled, “The Ballot or the Bullet” that attempted to change Black America for the better and stop the exploitation of African Americans.
