Embarrassed to ask this please be nice.

Alesia • With the love of my life, since the 10th grade. TTC#1 25 Aries. Happy, free spirit.
I am 25 years old currently in college and I have an informative speech that I have to do on Malcolm X- now I know what MLK, Abraham Lincoln, and Harriet Tubman did, but when I think about Malcolm X I can not think of one thing that he did that made a difference. My professor is an older Caucasian male and very strict with grading.If you make two mistakes on an outline or bibliography, the whole thing is wrong and you will receive no credit. My question is can anyone think of anything positive Malcolm X did that made a difference, that could help me on a ten minute speech Monday? Thank you! Sorry, if this is off topic, but I want to get a good grade.
