About the Project

Elijah Muhammad was the leader of the Nation of Islam (NOI) for most of the mid-twentieth century. Elijah Muhammad was born Elijah Robert Poole in 1897 in Georgia. After listening to NOI founder Wallace D. Fard speak about Islam and black empowerment, Poole dedicated his life to religion and changed his name to Muhammad. Elijah Muhammad would lead the NOI from 1934-1975 and mentor Muslim leaders such as Malcolm X, Louis Farrakhan, and Muhammad Ali. This work, written circa 1960 by a devoted follower, describes Muhammad in an ethereal manner.
