Program Description

Program consists of an hour-long interview with Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan. Farrakhan answers questions (posed by both host Topper Carew and the audience) that include what it takes to become a Minister with the Nation, what the mission of the Nation means to Farrakhan personally, what are some of the Nation's national programs for African Americans, if Farrakhan was ever a Christian, if African American mayors (and Black leadership) have been supportive of the movement, what kinds of opposition has he been confronted with from the white community, what is the University of Islam, what the links are between the interests of Chairman Mao and the Nation of Islam, what kinds of subjects African Americans should study for personal growth and for the sake of developing their minds, and what channels exist between the Nation and other Black Liberation movements. Farrakhan speaks both to his personal discovery of the teachings of Islam and to the divine guidance, as well as services the Nation's spiritual leader (the Honorable Elijah Muhammad) provides for African Americans in the United States.
