Founded in 1930 by a traveling salesman named Wallace Fard, the Black Muslims began as a religious movement for African Americans who had grown restless and discouraged by racial injustice and economic hardship. Under the leadership of Elijah Muhammad, the Nation of Islam built on its teachings to improve African-American economic conditions. By the time Malcolm X began delivering his fiery message of black separatism in the 1960s, the Nation of Islam had become a nationwide organization that - like the country itself - was on the brink of revolution.

The history of the Nation of Islam is both inspiring and shocking. From its doctrine of the devil white man to its insistence on black self-respect and clean living, from its inflammatory criticism of other American minorities to the economic and spiritual strength it has imparted to millions of troubled African Americans, the Nation of Islam remains a controversial and powerful part of African-American history.
