BLACK MUSLIMS


BLACK MUSLIMS
   a remarkably successful NEW RELIGIOUS MOVEMENT which began as a bizarre CULT and developed into an ORTHODOX branch of ISLAM in North America. The group was founded by F. W. Fard around 1930 and originally preached a race war against Whites in which Blacks would be aided by spacemen. Under the able leadership of Elijah Muhammad and his successors, the group has become increasingly Islamic and has reached out to embrace the MUSLIM world. Today it is a fast growing movement with an impressive record of social action among American Blacks. The most famous member of the movement was MALCOLM X who was assassinated in 1965.
