Season 4

The fourth season of GENIUS will explore the lives, legacies and dueling philosophies of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X. Under King’s visionary leadership. A frequent critic of King’s civic-minded approach, Malcolm X argued forcefully for Black empowerment, identity and self-determination. Though they came from markedly different backgrounds and met only once, King and Malcolm X are synonymous with the Civil Rights era they came to define, two sides of the same coin.
