Would MLK or Malcolm be effective in 2018?

50 years after the death of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, a new wave of young student activists have picked up the baton to lead protests against gun violence. While social media has served as an effective tool for groups like “Black Lives Matter”, why do you think that there has not been a single young African American leader to emerge in the past 40 years?

Would MLK or Malcolm be effective in 2018? Do we, as a people need a single leader in 2018?

We have had Jessie,AL and Farrakhan,but none have been able to attain mass support.Not sure if anyone can be a leader in these days and times

Unfortunately NO.MLK was having a hard time maintaining followers in his last years.We don't have the unity

We need a progressive leader,not an African American leader

NO

5. Barry said...

We need political leadership,not church leaders

I don't think this generation would follow a single leader.We are too lenient on our leaders and that leads to arrogance and corruption

Different times, diferent approaches are required

We are too comfortable and complacent to follow anybody.If Trump can make us mobilize,nothing will.

King controlled the media.There has been no one to control the media in present time other than Donald Trump.
Looking forward to this conversation Wednesday

We have to lead ourselves.

I think with today's technology,both would be effective,but I don't think we need a single leader.

MLK and Martin would lead in any era.Would you and your panel comment on so called religious leader Ray Lewis and his latest comments about Odell Beckham and God?

Ray Lewis,the murderer is now a prophet? He needs to take a seat
