The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakahn (National Representative of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad and the Nation of Islam) will return to Detroit on May 16th and 17th. Responding to a request, Farrakhan will speak before the Detroit City Council, to members of the clergy and to residents of the city. Acknowledging the Detroit’s rich legacy, Minister Farrakahn opined about the city’s present condition, saying “Detroit is where the Nation of Islam started. Detroit is almost considered now, a dead city. So we’ll come back to Detroit where we began and loook at the condition of Detroit, pool our resources and try to buy properties in Detroit and start rebuilding one of the greatest cities in America where we’re concerned.” Speaking on Washington, D.C.’s Rock Newman Show (WOWC 1480 AM), Minister Farrakhan laid out his vision on how the city’s blight could once again be transformed through a unified effort focusing on the best interest of the city. “We have a duty to that city. We’re going to come and see what we can do to help the school system, to help the government, to help the people. And then let’s try to own the city since the property is cheap and falling down why don’t we pool what resoruces we have and start buying up buildings and making them worthy and creating opportuntiies. That is what we need to do when we come to Detroit.” The Minister will make a public address on Friday, May 17th at Fellowship Chapel, 7707 W. Outer Drive in Detroit. Thedoors will open at 5:30 pm and the program will begin at 7 pm. For more information, contact Muhammad Mosque No. One at (313) 283-7245, or (313) 713-5181.
