Early Nation of Islam documents found in Detroit
Chicago Tribune ^ | 8/27/2010

Posted on 08/27/2010 5:26:00 PM PDT by markomalley

More than 1,000 documents, including some dating to the beginning of the Nation of Islam, were found in the attic of a home in Detroit, the city where the secretive movement started 80 years ago, a lawyer said.

Attorney Gregory Reed unveiled some documents, letters and a booklet Thursday at a Detroit mosque, including a rare 1933 signature of Nation of Islam founder W.D. Fard. Reed said the well-preserved documents detail the early structure and teachings of the group founded on the ideals of black nationalism.

"Very few have seen the internal workings of how [the Nation of Islam] was put together," said Reed, whose Keeper of the Word Foundation oversees collections and exhibits that include the works of Malcolm X, Rosa Parks and Nelson Mandela.

He said the boxes which also included detailed literature about the early movement's educational and leadership training were recently discovered by an unidentified man whose family members were Nation of Islam "pioneers." Reed said he was contacted by the family, which owns the home, because of his work with other collections.

Reed described another piece as a manifesto handwritten by Fard that became required reading for Nation of Islam members through the 1950s. It was not displayed at the mosque, remaining instead with the vast majority of artifacts in a vault.

He said the material has been reviewed and appraised by several collectors and auctioneers he didn't name. A foundation set up by the family in association with Keeper of the Word controls the rights to the collection.

Reed said officials with the Chicago-based Nation of Islam are aware of the documents and Reed's plans to publicly display them at a proposed center in Detroit.

Mr. Reed had better be very careful, or else he will have some smartly dressed men knocking at his front door late at night...

Well, I see a couple of firemen and what seems to be a Coast Guard vet with Mr. Wonder. I think they just like his music.

I did a little reading on Malcom X yesterday. He was never going to be a conservative or even a capitalist but he was clearly trying to ditch the muslim brotherhood. He said that they were populated by zombies and that they made him a zombie for 14 years.

A far more interesting story than the ethnocentric myth that he became.

Was Malcolm your traitor or ours? And if we dealt with him like a nation deals with a traitor, what the hell business is it of yours? A nation has to be able to deal with traitors and cutthroats and turncoats.

Louis Farrakhan

Do the documents mention the location of the laboratory where the devil and a mad scientist created white people?

I think alot of things changed for Malcolm X after having gone on hajj. What did he find in Saudi Arabia, home of Islam? Slavery. And who were his Arab-Muslim brothers enslaving? Sub-Saharan Africans.

You're correct, he was never going to be a mainstream American but he definately knew too much about the inside workings of that cult/criminal oraganization called the Nation of Islam to live. They snuffed him out just like any other criminal organization.

I have a problem understanding why the ex-slaves want to get together with their moslem slaver and dad who sold them into America slavery. I dont think anyone ever told them about the Saharan /Red Sea/Indian Ocean slave trade, nor the losses inflicted by Islam over the 1400 years...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8zM_MzkLKPY

Can you explain the root of their support of Islam? They are pissed off with the Whites for trading in them, but, the losses by Africa were multiples of the trans Atlantic trade in their journey through those three passages. WTH?

Frankly, I think the people are uneducated, thinking they were the only slaves on the planet, by the only slaver, cracker whitey and not aware at all of cracker mo! The largest slaver of all man kinds history!

But then again, maybe they hit the dirt taking the get outta jail free card... as it is illegal for a muslim to enslave another muslim.

Slavery in Saudi Arabia ended in the 1960's and there were somewhere between 300,000 and 500,000 slaves there and most if not all were Muslim. They bend their laws to suit themselves or they may have just purchased black African animists and Christians and then forced their conversions. You know, just like the Arab north Sudanese do to the black southern Sudanese. Selling them right out in the open for everyone to see.

Some years ago the BBC did a comprehensive documentary about slavery and PBS would air it because it showed black Africans as slavers. Liberals never want them to face the truth. Remember the film "Amistad"? Spielberg didn't include at the end that Cinque himself became a slave trader after winning his freedom here.

Anyone know the current relationship between Nation of Islam and — for want of a better word — “real” Islam? I seem to recall hearing some years ago a “real” Muslim denouncing Nation of Islam as fakes who had nothing to do with Islam. (Sorry I can’t be more specific, but it’s not really an issue I’ve followed closely!)

Not to mention the fact that Peter Geithner (father of Tim Geithner) and Anne Dunham Soetoro (Barack mom) worked for the Ford foundation in Indonesia.

People have long suspected that Louis Farrakhan was involved in the killing of Malcolm X.

“Can you explain the root of their support of Islam?”

That’s easy enough. It’s based on a hatred of American whites and a rejection of anything associated with them, including the Christian religion.
