MLK gets the most attention because he was the most politically correct and "white-friendly". But in order to understand the feelings of the time its important to look at other prominent black leaders of the 60s and 70s:
H. Rap Brown:
MLK jr is undoubtedly the most popular black civil rights activist to the blacks back then and now.
Just like Gandhi was the most popular independence activist back then and now over aggressive figures like Bhagat Singh.
From hearing MLKs speech, you can still understand the plight of the blacks back then.
Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and the like are pygmies compared to MLK.
A good movie about Malcom X was made starring Denzel Washington.
MLK, Jr. was among the best as a labor organizer.
Paul Winfield was excellent as MLK in the movie about him.
