Summary

Summary

Writing from a thorough knowledge of Black Muslim groups, Lomax examines the entire movement --from its beginnings under its mysterious founder, W.D. Ford, to its position as an explosive power on the racial scene. An imporant part of the book is devoted to the speeches of Malcolm X and Elijah Muhammad.
