Is there an alternative way of saying something has been ‘a topic of dispute”?

I want to write about the extent to which Malcolm X brought about any change to the Civil Rights Movement through his civil rights activism and that this has been ‘a topic of dispute‘ among revisionist historians.

Is there an alternative way of phrasing this that sounds better? I don’t want to use the words debate or discussed either as they are too weak in my opinion.


That is a controversial issue or a controversy :

dispute, argument, or debate, esp one concerning a matter about which there is strong disagreement and esp one carried on in public or in the press.
