Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Martin Luther King was a devout christian, where as Malcolm X was a muslim. Martin Luther King wanted to get things accomplished without aggression or violence, and Malcolm X did not. Martin Luther King wanted everyone to coexist peacefully and wanted to be counted as an equal, and Malcolm X wanted there to be a clear segregation of the White people and Black people in America, with different areas for each to live, because he felt that they would never get along.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
