Back in 2006, I put together this lengthy polemic that picks apart Louis Farrakhan’s narrative of the Malcolm X assassination and concludes that the NOI leader was ‘less than candid’ when he delivered his ‘What Really Happened’ sermons at Malcolm X College (1990) and Saviours Day (1993). I feel the time has come to share it with those of us engaged in the campaign to secure the publication of the Malcolm X files. The YouTube page for the video features a lengthy summary of the presentation’s content (complete with time stamps) and will hopefully prove useful to those not acquainted with the subject.
With reports that Mr Farrakhan has arrived in Jamaica to commemorate the 19th anniversary of the 1995 ‘Million Man March’ the time has come for the NOI leader to practice the ‘atonement’ he preaches by fully confessing his role in the cowardly 21st February 1965 assassination of Malcolm X. In addition, Mr Farrakhan must publish all of the NOI’s membership records on the Malcolm X killers: William X Bradley, Leon Davis, Talmadge Hayer, Albert Benjamin Thomas and Wilbert McKinney – as well as its files on former Newark Mosque #25 lieutenant Agurs Linward X Cathcart who has recently emerged as a person of interest where the Malcolm X assassination is concerned. Having acknowledged his own role in setting the stage for Malcolm’s assassination – and in light of the historical guilt borne by Muhammad’s Mosque #25 in New Jersey for producing the assassins who carried out the atrocity – both Mr Farrakhan as well as the serving minister of Mosque #25 have a profound moral obligation to march a battalion of FOI soldiers down to William X Bradley’s First Class Championship Development Center located at 936 Bergen Street in Newark and demand that he immediately surrender himself to the authorities. As former participants, in one form or another, in the murder of Malcolm X, Mr Farrakhan and Newark’s Mosque #25 must now lead the world in bringing closure to this tragic episode. 3rd December 2014 will mark the 50th anniversary of Malcolm X’s legendary address at Oxford University in which he delivered a clarion call to all mankind to unite in creating a better world. Sadly, that date also marks the 50th anniversary of Louis Farrakhan’s homicidal screed in the Muhammad Speaks newspaper in which the NOI leader declared that a man as heroic and noble as Malcolm X was “worthy of death”. It’s time for Mr Farrakhan to ATONE.
