Farrakhan: Michael Jackson's 'Prophetic Voice'



During these years in the Nation of Islam (more years than I’m ready to confess) this is the first time I recall sitting in the front row for a speech by the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, or even a speech by the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad! So I got to see and hear it all without obstruction! These pictures are what I could see. Not only was I seated on the front row, I was sitting directly in front of the speaker’s rostrum. How sweet it is.
These reactions were posted—via the miracle of modern technology—as Minister Farrakhan spoke.
Anxiously waiting to see and hear Min. Louis Farrakhan speak on "Cruxifiction of Michael Jackson" at Mosque Maryam in Chicago. I’m sitting next to fellow journalists Herb Boyd, Bill Reed, George Curry, and Brian Muhammad.
Sisters singing tribute to Michael Jackson, thrilling! It was almost too good to be a religious service. But then again, what would choirs of angels look and sound like anyway?
The shouts, the cheers, of the faithful--Bearing Witness to The Truth--adds an exciting element to Min. Farrakhan's lecture. Teach us! Wake us up! what a live and living show this is. Min. Farrakhan's subject: "Crucifixtion of Michael Jackson." Why compare MJ to crucifixion of Jesus, Min. asked.
Before Michael Jackson, others crucified included Denmark Vesey, Nat Turner, W.E.B. DBois, Paul Robeson, Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, Elijah Muhammad. Min. Farrakhan is firing on all 8 cylinders!
"Michael Jackson was a warrior!"
“Outside appearance of MJ went from Black to White, inside MJ went from White to Black,” the Minister said. WOW!
MJ did not sing "Man in the Mirror" at Million Man Mach, but donated $100,000.
Pres Obama's "blackness" came out concerning Skip Gates.
Michael Jackson had a prophetic voice, so does Barack Obama: Louis Farrakhan said.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

Nation of Islam welcome


The South Loop Chicago Hotel in the historic Bronzeville neighborhood is one of the Windy City's newest fine hotels. It is owned by a Black man, who appreciates the patronage of the Nation of Islam and does not run from it, the way far too many African American businesses too often do. That is a refreshing sign.

Great Day in Farrakhan's Chicago


The Star and Crescent sign at the Salaam Restaurant, stands out against a buttermilk sky. A great feat of engineering facing one of the countless great feats of Nature. God is Great.
