Solution

The correct option is B Malcolm X
Malcolm X was an Afro-American activist. Unlike Dr Martin Luther King Jr., he believed that blacks should have a separate nation. He wanted Afro-Americans to be independent of the American rule. He was a radical leader who popularised the idea that blacks should fight for their independence and self-rule by any means including armed conflicts.
