‘MLK/X,’ the fourth installment of Disney+ and Nationwide Geographic’s interval drama anthology collection ‘Genius,’ has set its lead forged: Kelvin Harrison Jr. will play Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Aaron Pierre will play Malcolm X, Weruche Opia will play Coretta Scott King and Jayme Lawson will play Betty Shabazz.
“Genius: MLK/X” will discover the early life, pioneering accomplishments, dueling philosophies and key private relationships of Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X. Whereas King superior racial equality by way of nonviolent protest, Malcolm X argued forcefully for Black empowerment, identification and self-determination. With their formidable wives, Coretta Scott King and Betty Shabazz, by their sides, King and Malcolm X turned synonymous with the civil rights period and the struggle for racial and financial justice.
