Self-Government in the New World

This chapter taught me a lot about the separation in the African American Muslim community during this time. WD Muhammad does a great job describing the views and beliefs of Fard Muhammad and his close relationship to Elijah Muhammad. I found it interesting how Fard Muhammad views white people and how he wanted to completely separate African Americans from and rename African Americans. While reading my book for the book report that was due back in October there was no mention of Fard Muhammad at all. This may be due to the fact that when Muhammad came to “power”, Malcolm X had already left the Nation. This is was previously stated in the prologue and Muhammad gained “power” after the assassination of Malcolm X.
