/** Speech delivered by Malcolm X
while he was still with the Nation of Islam

Black Man's History

I want to thank Allah for coming and
giving to us our leader and teacher here in
America, The Honorable Elijah Muhammad. I want
to thank Brother Benjamin at the outset for
doing a wonderful job of opening up our eyes and
giving us a good preliminary basic understanding
of the means and the objectives of The Honorable
Elijah Muhammad, and also I am thankful to Allah
for bringing so many people out here tonight,
especially just before Christmas. You know,
it's next to a miracle when you get this many of
our people together so close to Christmas
interested in anything whatsoever that's
serious. And actually what this shows is the
change that's taking place among the so-called
Negroes not only here in New York but throughout
the entire world. Today dark mankind is waking
up and is undertaking a new type of thinking,
and it is this new type of thinking that is
creating new approaches and new reactions that
make it almost impossible to figure out what the
black man is going to do next, and by black man
we mean, as we are taught by The Honorable
Elijah Muhammad, we include all those who are
nonwhite. He teaches us that black is the basic
color, that black is the foundation or the basis
of all colors. And all of our people who have
not yet become white are still black, or atleast
part of the Black Nation,and here at Muhammad's
Mosque when you hear us using the term "black"
we mean everbody who's here, regardless of your
complexion. If you're here at the Mosque you're
black, because the only ticket you need to get
into Muhammad's Mosque is to be black. So if
you got in you know you're black. You may not
have known that you were black before you came
here. In fact, very few of our people really
look upon themselves as being black. They think
of themselves as practically everything else on
the color spectrum except black. And no matter
how dark one of our people may be, you rarely
hear him call himself black. But now that The
Honorable Elijah Muhammad has been teaching
among the so-called Negroes, you find our people
of all complexions going around bragging that
"I'm a black man." This shows you that a new
teaching is taking place and there is new
thinking among the so-called Negroes. Yet just
yesterday you would have to admit that it was
very difficult to get our people to refer to
themselves as black. Now all of a sudden our
people of all complexions are not apologizing
for being black but bragging about being black.
So there's a new thinking all over America among
the so-called Negroes. And the one who is
actually the author of this new thinking is The
Honorable Elijah Muhammad. It is what he is
teaching that is making our people, for the
first time, proud to be black, and what's most
important of all, for the first time it makes
our people want to know more about black, want
to know why black is good, or what there is
about black that is good.
I might stop right here to point out
that some of you may say, "I came up here to
listen to some religion about Islam, but now all
I hear you talk about is black." We don't
separate our color from our religion. The white
man doesn't. THe white man never has separated
Christianity from white, nor has he separated
the white man from Christianity. When you hear
the white man bragging, "I'm a Christian," he's
bragging about being a white man. Then you have
the Negro. When he is bragging about being a
Christian, he's bragging that he's a white man,
or he wants to be white, and usually those
Negroes who brag like that, I think you have to
agree, in their songs and the things the sing in
church, they show that they have a greater
desire to be white than anything else. My
mother was a Christian and my father was a
Christian and I used to hear them when I was a
little child sing the song "Wash Me White As
Snow." My father was a black man and my mother
was a black woman, but yet the songs that they
sang in their church were designed to fill their
hearts with the desire to be white. So may
people, especially our people, get resentful
when they hear me say something like this. But
rather than get resentful all they have to do is
think back on many of the songs and much of the
teachings and the doctrines that they were
taught while they were going to church and
they'll have to agree that it was all designed
to make us look down on black and up at white.
So the religion that we have, the
religion of Islam, the religion that makes us
Muslims, the religion that The Honorable Elijah
Muhammad is teaching us here in America today,
is designed to undo in our minds what the white
man has done to us. It's designed to undo the
type of brainwashing that we have had to undergo
for four hundred years at the hands of the white
man in order to bring us down to the level that
we're at today. So when you hear us often refer
to black in almost a boastful way, actually
we're not boasting, we're speaking of it in a
factual sense. All we're doing is telling the
truth about our people. Whenever you exalt
black, that's not propaganda; when yo exalt
white, that's propaganda. Yet no one can give
biological evidence to show that black actually
is the stronger or superior of the two if you
want to make that kind of comparison. So never
thin ill of the person whom you hear
representing The Honorable Elijah Muhammad if an
overemphasis seems to be placed on the word
black, but rather sit and analyze and try to get
an understanding.
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad teaches us
that of all the things that the black man, or
any man for that matter, can study history is
the best qualified to reward all research. You
have to have a knowledge of history no matter
what you are going to do; anything that you
undertake you have to have a knowledge of
history in order to be successful in it. The
thing that has made the so-called Negro in
America fail, more than any other thing, is
your, my, lack of knowledge concerning history.
We know less about history than anything else.
There are black people in America who have
mastered the mathematical sciences, have become
professors and experts in physics, are able to
toss sputniks out there in the atmosphere, out
in space. They are masters in that field. We
have black men who have mastered the field of
medicine, we have black men who have mastered
other fields, but very seldom do we have black
men in America who have mastered the knowledge
of the history of the black man himself. we have
among our people those who are experts in every
field, but seldom can you find one among us who
is an expert on the history of the black man.
And because of his lack of knowledge concerning
the history of the black man, no matter how much
he excels in the other sciences, he's always
confined, he's always relegated to the same low
rung of the ladder that the dumbest of our
people are relegated to. And all of this stems
form his lack of knowledge concerning history.
What made Dr. George Washington Carver a Negro
scientist instead of a scientist? What made
Paul Robeson a Negro actor instead of an actor?
What made, or makes, Ralph Bunche a Negro
statesman and instead of a statesman? the only
difference between Bunche and Carver and these
others I just mentioned is they don't know the
history of the black man. Bunche is an expert,
and international politician, but he doesn't
know himself, he doesn't know the history of the
black people. He can be sent all over the world
by America to solve problems for America, or to
solve problems for other nations, but he can't
solve problems for his own people in this
country. Why? What is it that ties our people
up in this way? The Honorable Elijah Muhammad
says that it boils down to just one
When you study the history of Bunche,
his history is different from the history of the
black man who just cam here from Africa. And if
you notice, when Bunche was in Atlanta, Georgia,
during the summer NAACP Convention, he was Jim
Crowed, he was segregated, he was not allowed to
go in a hotel down there. Yet there are
Africans who come here, black as night, who can
go into those cracker hotels. Well, what is the
difference between Bunche and one of them? The
difference is Bunche doesn't know his history,
and they, the Africans, do know their history.
They may come here out of the jungles, but they
know their history. They may come here wearing
sheets with their heads all wrapped up, but they
know their history. You and I can come our of
Harvard but we don't know our history. There's
a basic difference in why we are treated as we
are: one knows his history and one doesn't know
his history! the American so-called Negro is a
soldier who doesn't know his history; he's a
servant who doesn't know his history; he's a
graduate of Columbia, or Yale, or Harvard, or
Tuskeegee, who doesn't know his history. He's
confined, he's limited, he's held under the
control and the jurisdiction of the white man
who knows more about the history of the Negro
than the Negro knows about himself. But when
you and I wake up, as we're taught by The
Honorable Elijah Muhammad, and learn our
history, learn the history of our kind, and the
history of he white kind, then the white man
will be at a disadvantage and we'll be at an
the only thing that puts you and me at a
disadvantage is our lack of knowledge concerning
history. So one of the reasons, one of the
missions, one of the objectives of The Honorable
Elijah Muhammad here in America is to only to
teach you and me the right religions but to
teach you and me history. In fact, do you know
that if you and I know history we know the right
religion? The only way that you can become
confused, that you can become mixed up and not
know which religion belongs to God, is if you
don't know history. In fact, you have to know
history to know something about God. You have
to know history to know something about God's
religion. You have to know history to know
something about God's people. You have to know
history to know something about God's plans and
God's purposes, and, as I say, the only people
who don't know history are the American
so-called Negroes. If you know history, for
example, for example, you know when you look at
this religion right here [writes"Christianity"
on the black board] the only way you can explain
it is to have a knowledge of history.
Why is it called Christianity? It is
called Christianity, they say, because it was
named after a man called Christ who was born two
thousand years ago. Now you know, brothers and
sisters, God is and old God, and the world is
and old world. The universe has been here a
long time. I think all of you would agree that
the universe has been here longer than two
thousand years. Then you'll also agree that the
universe was made by God Himself, that God
created the universe. God created the people
who are on this earth, God wouldn't create a
universe, God wouldn't set a thing up in the sky
that makes nine planets rotate around it, all of
them inhabited, you an I inhabiting the planet
earth upon which we live-God wouldn't have done
all this and not given people a religion. God
put His religion here at the creation of the
universe. Now then, since you agree to this and
you'll agree also that Christ was born two
thousand years ago, this couldn't have been
God's religion. Your knowledge of history tells
you that God couldn't call His religion
Christianity because Christianity is only two
thousand years old. So if this is the case,
then what was God's religion called before the
birth of Christ? Can you see the importance of
history? Why, if you didn't know history you'd
think that Christianity was God's religion, and
you'd be running around here wondering why
everybody doesn't practice it. Because some
people have a better knowledge of history than
others do, it is only the people whose knowledge
of history is limited who jump up and say that
Christianity is the name of God's religion. If
Christianity hasn't always been the name of
God's religion. If Christianity hasn't always
been the name of God's religion it isn't now the
name of God's religion. God doesn't change His
religion; God doesn't change His mind; God's
mind is made up from the beginning. He doesn't
have to change His mind because He knows all
there is to know al the way down the wheel of
time. He never has to change His mind, His mind
is made up, His knowledge is complete, all
encompassing. Do you understand? So once you
can see, and I think you can, then it's almost
impossible for God to call Christianity His
What should God call His religion?
Christians are the ones who call God's religion
Christianity, but God was here before Christians
came on the scene. They tell you that
Christians began back there with the Romans,
with one of the Roman Emperors who accepted the
teachings of some of Jesus' disciples and then
named what the disciples taught "Christianity."
But Jesus didn't call it Christianity, it wasn't
named until two or three hundred years after
Jesus was dead. Right or wrong? Any history
book will tel this, any theologian knows this,
and the only Negroes who will contend this are
those who don't know history, and most Negroes
don't know history. Most Negroes will contend
this, but when you tell it to the white man he
shuts his mouth because he knows that this is
Then those who have studied a little
deeper will say, " Before God called it
Christianity it was called Judaism" -isn't this
what they say? Named after a man called Judah.
This doesn't follow logically. If Christianity
was named after Christ was born, and before
Christ was born the religion was called Judaism,
then that means that it got its name from a son
of jacob whose name was Judah. But history
tells us that Jacob was bending down before
Judah was born, which shows us that Jacob's
religion couldn't have been Judaism, and Isaac
was Jacob's bather and he was bending down also
before Jacob, his son, was born. Isaac was
Judah's grandfather and Abraham was Judah's
great-grandfather, meaning that Abraham was on
the scene long before Judah, and you couldn't
call Abraham's religion Judaism because there
was no such thing as Judaism in Abraham's day.
There wa no such thing a Judaism in Isaac's day,
or in Jacob's day. Do you understand? So what
was God's religion before they called it
Judaism? This is something that the white man
has never taught you and me. The white man is
afraid to let you and me know what's God's
religion was called in Abraham's day because
Abraham is supposed to have been the father of
all of them. He is supposed to have been one of
God's first servants. One of the first to
submit to God is supposed to have been Abraham.
Now if you can see this, then find out what
Abraham's religion was.
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad teaches us
that Abraham's religion was the religion of
Islam. Islam only means complete submission to
God, complete obedience to God. Abraham obeyed
God. Abraham obeyed God so much so that when
God told Abraham to take his son and sacrifice
him-stick a dagger in his heart, isn't that what
he said?- Abraham took his only son up on the
mountain. He was going to sacrifice him to God,
showing that he believed in Islam. What does
Islam mean? Obey God. Submit to god. so that
this name [writes "Islam'], if you'll notice,
has no connection, no association, with the
death of a man. This is not a man's name, this
doesn't come from a man. This is not a man's
name, this doesn't come from a man. Buddhism is
named after a man called Buddha; Confucianism is
named after a man called Confucius-right or
wrong? Likewise with Judaism and Christianity.
But Islam is not connected with any name. Islam
is independent of any name. Islam is an act
which means submit completely to God, or obey
God. And when you say your religion is Islam
that means you're a Muslim. So to clarify this
what must you do? You must have a knowledge of
history. If you don't have a knowledge of
history you'll run around calling yourself a
Christian when you're serving God, or you'll run
around saying your religion is Judaism and
you'll swear you're serving God. If your
religion is Christianity you're following
Christ, if your religion is Judaism you're
following Judah, if your religion is Buddhism
you're religion is Buddhism you're following
Buddha, do you understand? And they are all
dead, and if you follow them you'll die too.
This is where it all leads you. Wherever your
leaders go, that's what happens to you. Now we
who follow The Honorable Elijah Muhammad, we
believe in Islam, we don't believe in Muhammad.
He teaches us the religion of Islam. Do
you understand the difference? These people who
follow Christ [pointing to the cross painted on
the blackboard], they believe in Christ; they
believe Christ is God-Oh yes, they do- that he
was born of the Blessed Virgin, didn't have a
father, was just a spirit, and then came into
the world and was crucified, rose form the dead,
and went up into space. They believe that, but
they believe it because they don't know history.
But if you notice, the Jews have a better
knowledge of history than the Christians do, do
they not? the Christians' history only goes
back two thousand years; the history of the Jews
goes back beyond four thousand years. Can you
see this? And the Muslim history goes
back...there is no limit to the Muslim history.
If you notice, the Christians can only go back
to what they call the Greek Empire. That's what
they call the Occidental, the beginning of the
Occident, the Greek Empire, the Roman Empire,
and so forth. The Jews have a knowledge of
history that goes back to Egypt and Babylon.
You notice how one goes has no limit.
There are no chains on how far you can go back
when you are a Muslim. The Christians and the
Jews combined go back to whom? To Adam, and
they stop right there. And they say beyond him
there was nothing happening. The greater their
knowledge of history is -this has an influence
on the type of religion that they accept. Do
you understand?
All praise is due to Allah. Another
example: What makes the royal family of Europe,
or any country, differ from the peasant?
Royalty knows its ancestry, royalty knows its
history, this is what makes them royal. You
can't have a king who can't trace his history
back to his forefathers. The only way you can
be king is to be born a king. If you take away
his history, and he doesn't know who his
forefathers were, what does he become? A
peasant -a common ordinary man. Same with the
Jews and Christians. It's because the Jews have
the longest record of history that they can call
themselves the Chosen People. The Christians
can't call themselves the Chosen People because
their history is not long enough. They can't go
back to the time when the choice was being made.
The Hebrews, the so-called Jews, can go back so
far they can lay claim to that which is actually
not theirs. But the reason they can claim it is
that nobody else they are dealing with can go
back far enough to disprove them. Except the
Muslims -do you understand? So The Honorable
Elijah Muhammad's mission is to teach the
so-called Negroes a knowledge of history, the
history of ourselves, our own kind, showing us
how we fit into prophecy, Biblical prophecy.
When you go to one of the churches you will
notice that it is named after some word in their
Bible: Big Rock Baptist Church, or Drinking at
the Well Baptist Church, Friendship Baptist
Church, Union Baptist, Israel Baptist, Jacob's
Ladder Baptist. They find some kind of old
funny word in their Bible to name their whole
religion after. Their whole doctrine is based
on a verse in the Bible: "He rose."
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad bases what
he teaches not on verse but on the entire book.
And from beginning to end, he says, he can open
up the Book and prove that the Bible agrees with
him, and then use the Bible to prove that what
they are teaching in the church is wrong. You
know that's saying something.
For instance, he says that in Genesis,
the fifteenth chapter and the thirteenth verse,
just to give you an example: "And he said unto
Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a
stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall
serve them; and they shall afflict them four
hundred years; and also that nation, whom they
shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall
they come out with great substance." Now The
Honorable Elijah Muhammad says that explains his
teachings right there, because he teaches that
the so-called Negro is the one that the Bible is
talking about. Who have spent four hundred years
and are strangers in a land that is not theirs?
And you can't deny that we are strangers here.
I don't think any of you will deny that we are
strangers here. We are not in a country where
we are made to feel at home. We'll put it that
way. There is hardly any Negro in his right
mind who can say he feels at home in America.
He has to admit that he is made to feel like a
stranger. Right or wrong? Well, this is what
God said to Abraham would happen in this day and
time. Remember, Abraham's religion was Islam.
Abraham wasn't a Jew, Abraham wasn't a
Christian, Abraham wasn't a Buddhist, Abraham
was a Muslim, which means he obeyed God. God
told him, yes. He said, your people are gong
into bondage, they're going to become slaves,
they're going to be afflicted, they'll be
strangers in a land far from home for four
hundred years. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad
says you and I are the seed of Abraham, we're
the descendants of Abraham. Now the preacher in
the church, he tells you that the Jews are the
seed of Abraham. One of them is right and one
of them is wrong: either Mr. Muhammad is right
and the preacher is wrong, or the preacher is
right and Mr. Muhammad is wrong. This is what
we are putting on the line today.

Who is the seed of Abraham? Is it this
blue-eyed, blond-haired, pale-skinned Jew? Or
is it the so-called Negro -you? Who is it? And
what makes it so pitiful, many of our people
would rather believe that the Jews are God's
Chosen People than to believe that they are
God's Chosen People. They would rather believe
that the Jew is better than anybody else. This
is a Negro. Nobody else would put everybody
else above him but the Negro. I mean the
American Negro. Remember, God said that the
people would be strangers. The Jews aren't
strangers. The Jews know their history, the
Jews know their culture, the Jews know their
language; they know everything there is to know
about themselves. They know how to rob you,
they know how to be your landlord, they know how
to be your grocer, they know how to be your
lawyer, they know how to join the NAACP and
become the president -right or wrong? They know
how to control everything you've got. You can't
say they're lost. But the poor so-called Negro,
he doesn't control the NAACP, he can't control
the Urban League, he can't control his own
schools, he can't control his own businesses in
his own community. He can't even control his
own mind. He's lost and lost control of himself
and gone astray.
But he fits the picture here that the
Bible says concerning our people in the last
day: "Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a
stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall
serve them." And you have served the white
man; he hasn't served you and me. Why, the Jew
hasn't served anybody here. You are the one
that's serving: "And they shall afflict them
four hundred years; and also that nation, whom
they shall serve, will I judge: and afterwards
shall they come out with great substance."
Ofttimes when you say this to the so-called
Negroes they'll come up and tell you that this
is the Jew. But if you'll notice, when jesus was
talking to the Jews, way back here in John, he
told them that they shall know the truth and it
will make them free. The Jews popped up and
said: "How are you going to say that we shall be
made free? We have never been in bondage to
anyone." Isn't that what the Jews told Jesus?
Now look at it. If the Jews said to Jesus, two
thousand years after Moses supposedly led the
Hebrews out of bondage, that they had never been
in bondage -now you know the Jews had Moses'
history, they knew who Moses was- how could they
stand up and tell Jesus they had never been in
bondage? Not these things that you call Jews.
They weren't in Egypt, they weren't the people
that Moses led out of Egypt, and the Jews know
this. But the Bible is written in such a tricky
way, when you read it you think that Moss led
the Jews out of bondage. But if you get a Jew
in a good solid conversation today and you know
how to talk to him, he'll have to admit this,
that it wasn't out of bondage that Moses brought
them -it was out of somewhere else- and where
Moses really brought them is their secret, but,
thanks to Almighty God, The Honorable Elijah
Muhammad knows their secret, and he told it to
us and we're going to tell it to you.

If the Bible said that god is going to
judge that nation, the nation that enslaved His
people, how would He keep from destroying His
own people? The same Bible is a book of history
and in the eighteenth chapter of the book of
Deuteronomy, in the eighteenth verse, god told
Moses: "I will raise them up a Prophet" -talking
about you and me- I'll raise them up a prophet
just like thee -a prophet like Moses whose
mission it would be to do for you and me the
same thing that Moses did back them. It would
be a prophet like Moses. In fact, when you get
down to malachi, He lets it be known that just
before He comes to judge that nation, the name
of the prophet or messenger whom He would send
among the people would be Elijah. If says:
Before the coming of that great and dreadful day
I shall send you elijah and Elijah's job will be
to turn the hearts of the children to the
fathers and the hearts of the fathers to the
children. What does this mean, turn the hearts
of the children to the fathers? The so-called
Negro are childlike people -you're like
children. No matter how old you get, or how
bold you get, or how wise you get, or how rich
you get, or how educated you get, the white man
still calls you what? Boy! Why, you are a child
in his eyesight! And you are a child. Anytime
you have to let another man set up a factory for
you and you can't set up a factory for yourself,
you're a child; anytime another man has to open
up businesses for you and you don't know how to
open up businesses for yourself and your people,
you're a child; anytime another man sets up
schools and you don't know how to set up your
own schools, you're a child. Because a child is
someone who sits around and waits for his father
to do for him what he should be doing for
himself, or what he's too young to do for
himself, or what he is too dumb to do for
himself. So the white man, knowing that here in
America all the Negro has done -I hate to say
it, but it's the truth -all you and I have done
is build churches and let the white man build
You and I build churches and let the
white man build schools. You and I build
churches and let the white man build up
everything for himself. Then after you build
the church you have to go and beg the white man
for a job, and beg the white man for some
education. Am I right or wrong? Do you see
what I mean? It's too bad but it's true. And
it's history. So it shows that these childlike
people -people who would be children, following
after the white man -it says in the last day
that God will raise up Elijah, and Elijah's job
will be to turn the hearts of these children
back toward their fathers. Elijah will come and
change our minds; he'll teach us something that
will turn us completely around. When Elijah
finds us we'll be easy to lead in the wrong
direction but hard to lead in the right
direction. But when Elijah gets through
teaching the Lost Sheep, or the Lost People of
God, he'll turn them around, he'll change their
minds, he'll put a board in their back, he'll
make them throw their shoulders back and stand
upright like men for the first time. It says
he'll turn the hearts of these children toward
their fathers and the hearts of the fathers
toward the children. This is something that The
Honorable Elijah Muhammad is doing here in
America today. You and I haven't thought in
terms of our forefathers. We haven't thought of
our fathers. Our fathers, brothers, are back
home. Our fathers are in the East. We're
running around here begging the Great White
Father. You never hear of black people in this
country talking or speaking or thinking in terms
of connecting themselves with their own kind
back home. They are trying to make contact with
the white man, trying to make a connection with
the white man, trying to connect, trying to make
a connection with a kidnapper who brought them
here, trying to make a connection with,
actually, the man who enslaved them. You know
that's a shame -it's pitiful -but it's true.
The Honorable Elijah muhammad says that
when Elijah comes, the Book says when Elijah
comes, what Elijah will do is to teach these
people the truth. And the truth that Elijah
will teach the people would be so strong it will
make all that other stuff that the preachers are
talking about sound like a fairy story. Elijah
will open the people's eyes up so wide that from
then on a preacher won't be able to talk to them
-and this is really true. Do you know, people
have come to Muhammad's Mosque and no matter
whether they believed in what Mr. Muhammad was
saying or not they never could go back and sit
in church. This is true. What The Honorable
Elijah Muhammad does is to turn on the light,
and when he turns on the light it enables us to
see and think for ourselves. He shows us that
what the white man has taught us concerning
history has actually been a distortion. He's
never given you and me true facts about history,
neither about himself nor about our people. You
know I read a book one day called The Four
Cities of Troy. You can go to the library, some
libraries, and check it out. What was this
based on? To show you what a liar the white man
is. When i say liar: you have white people who
are scientists and keep truth in their own
circles, and they never let you -they never let
the masses -know anything about this truth that
they keep in the circle. They got something
else that they invent and put out for the masses
to believe, but they themselves keep knowledge
in a circle. So in this particular book it
pointed out that some archaeologists were
delving in the ruins of the ancient city of
Troy, and it's the practice of archaeologists to
dig, so in digging down into the ruins of Troy
they dug deeper than they intended to, and they
ran into the ruins of another city that had been
there so much longer than this city of Troy that
it had gone down beneath the sands of time, and
they had built this city of Troy on top of it.
When these archaeologists were delving into the
ruins of the ancient city they learned that
there were ruins of a city more ancient than
that. So they started frantically digging onto
that one and dug some more until they found
another one and before they got through digging
they had dug down and they had discovered that
civilizations in that area had been there so far
back into history that at different times in
history some of the cities had been destroyed,
had become completely covered up with sand and
dirt, until another people came along and didn't
even know it was there and built another
civilization on top of it. This happened four
different times -to give you some idea of what
the white man knows concerning the length of
time man has been on this earth -and still that
white man would jump up in your face and try to
make you believe that the first man was made six
thousand years ago named Adam. And a lot of
Negroes will want to know what you are talking
about -Adam -that's what God called him -God
took some dirt and breathed on it and told Adam,
"Come forth," and there he was. Now you know
that's a shame. It's all right to believe when
you were a little baby that God made a little
doll out of the sand and mud and breathed on it
an that was the first man. But here it is 1962
with all this information floating around in
everybody's ears -you can get it free. Why, you
should open up your minds and your heads and
your hearts and realize that you have been led
by a lie. Today it's time to listen to nothing
but naked, undiluted truth. And when you know
the truth, as Jesus said: "The truth will make
you free." Abraham Lincoln won't make you free.
Truth will make you free. when you know the
truth, you're free. Also you have your
archaeologists, anthropologists, other forms of
historians who agree that they don't know how
long man has been on earth, but they do know
that man has been on earth longer than six
thousand years. They know that man was not made
just six thousand years ago. They know this now
but a long time ago they didn't know it. There
was a time when they believed that a man had
fewer ribs than a woman. You can believe that
because they said that God made Eve from one of
Adam's ribs -so Adam had a rib missing. And
they actually ran around here believing for many
rears that man had one less rib, and they were
shook up when they got into the science of
anatomy and discovered that man -all his ribs
were there! They began to wonder then what
happened in the Bible?
How long has man been here? In the
Bible in the first chapter of Genesis and the
twenty-sixth verse, after God had made
everything else it says: "And God said, Let us
make man." Let me write what God said here on
the board...Look what God said, brothers. I
don't think you ever looked at this. It says:
"And God said, Let us make man." The key word
here is what? Yes, what does "us" mean? More
than one. Who was God talking to? If God was
all by Himself, no one was there but Him, who
was He talking to when He said, "Let us make
man"? Who was there with God who was about to
help Him make this man? When God was getting
ready to make the sun He didn't say, "Let us
make some sun!" He said, "Let there be light."
And here is the sun, a ball of fire 2,679,785
miles in circumference, 853,000 miles in
diameter, 17,072 degrees hot, and God said, "Let
there be," and that big ball of fire popped up
there in the universe, with no help. Now you
know something is wrong. It should be harder to
make that than man: a huge ball of fire
2,679,785 miles in circumference, 14,072 degrees
hot -that's a whole lot of heat. And God said,
"Let there be," and that just jumped up in the
universe. He didn't ask for no help: "Let there
be this and let there be that." He had so much
power that everything He wanted came into
existence; as soon as He said "be," there it
was. But when He got to man something happened,
someone else was there, wasn't there? That's
something to think about. We let you think
about it for a minute...
The white man's world is newer world
than the black man's world. If this man said
that they were about to make man, and he said we
would make him how -in your image -this shows
you that there's somebody there with him. "Let
us make man on our image, in our likeness. Let
us make him look like us. He won't be the same
as we are, he'll be in our image." That's God
talking, right? He's talking to somebody. You
know, I'm thankful to Allah for raising up The
Honorable Elijah Muhammad and making us see
these things that we could never see before.
The birth of the white race has always been a
secret. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad says that
the birth of the white race is shrouded in the
story of Adam. The story of Adam hides the
birth of the white race, and because you and I
have never been taught to look into a thing and
analyze a thing we took the story of Adam
exactly as it was. We thought that God made a
man named Adam six thousand years ago. But
today The Honorable Elijah Muhammad teaches us
that man, Adam, was a white man; that before
Adam was made the black man was already here.
The white man will even tell you that, because
he refers to Adam as the first one. He refers
to the Adamites as those who came from that
first one. He refers to the pre-Adamites as
those who were here before Adam. Right or
wrong? Those people who were here before Adam.
And he always refers to these people as
"aborigines," which means what? BLACK FOLK!!!!
You never find a white aborigine. Aborigines
are called natives, and they're always
dark-skinned people. You and I are aborigines.
But you don't like to be called an aborigine;
you want to be called an American. Aborigine
actually means, "from the beginning." It's two
Latin words, "ab" meaning "from"; "origine"
meaning "the beginning"; and aborigine is only
the term applied to those dark-skinned people
who have been on this earth since the beginning
of the universe. You know that's going way
back. What do you mean, since the beginning of
the universe?
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad teaches us
that, just as we pointed out a moment ago, the
black man has been here a long time. He never
has had a beginning. But the white man has
never had a knowledge of the history of the
black man. It's like a father and a son. If
the father is fifty years old and the son is
only ten, the father knows everything there is
to know about his son because he was here
before his son was born; the son only knows what
has happened during his own ten years. He only
knows what went on before his arrival from what
his father tells him. It's the same way with
the black man and the white man: the black man's
been here a long time, but the white man has
been here a short time. Now the white man only
knows about himself, what he's been told, and he
hasn't been told anything. He came to himself
up in the caves of Europe, and he can't get any
information that goes beyond the cave. And
since you and I fell into his trap and were made
deaf, dumb, and blind by him, we don't have
access no tho any information that the white man
doesn't know about. So we think that the
beginning of the white man meant the beginning
of everything, us too. We're not aware that we
were here before he was made. Can you
understand that? The Honorable Elijah Muhammad
teaches us that sixty-six trillion years ago
-trillion, how much is trillion? Not hundreds,
not thousands, nor millions, nor billions, but
sixty-six trillions years ago - the black man
was here. We have the sun which is the center
of the universe; 36,000,000 miles form the sun
is the planet we call Mercury, and 67,200,000
miles from the sun is the planet called Venus,
and 93,000,000 miles from the sun is the planet
here that you and I live on called Earth,
141,500,000 miles out here is a planet called
Mars, and 483,000,000 miles from the sun is a
planet called Jupiter, 886,000,000 miles form
the sun is a planet called Saturn, and on down
the road a piece are a couple more planets. So
right here this planet that you and I live on
called Earth, that rotates around the sun, The
Honorable Elijah Muhammad teaches us that
sixty-six trillion years ago our people were
living on this planet: the black man was living
on this planet. But in those days it was larger
than it is now, and the planet Mars, that was
off here beyond it, had an effect upon our
planet then in the same manner that the moon
affects us today. At that time there was no
moon up there. Where was the moon? The moon
was down here, the moon was part of this planet,
the moon and this planet were one planet, and
the black man was living here then. He was a
scientist, he was a wise black man. Black men
have always been wise, black men have always
been the wisest beings in the universe, and
among these beings, black beings, there is on
who is supreme; he is referred to as the Supreme
Being, do you understand?
So The Honorable Elijah Muhammad tells
us that a wise black scientist, sixty-six
trillion years ago, began to argue with the
other scientists because he wanted the people of
Earth to speak a certain language, and since
they wouldn't agree he wanted to destroy
civilization. So this scientist drove a shaft
into the center of the Earth and filled it with
high explosives and set it off. He was trying
to destroy civilization; he was trying to
destroy the black man. But you can't destroy
the black man; the black man can't destroy
himself. The black man has the most powerful
brain in the universe. So there is no
intelligence more powerful than the intelligence
of the black man. And because of this the black
man can't even create thought that would destroy
him. He is indestructible. You can blow up
everything and the black man will still be here.
You just can't get away form him, brother. So
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad said he filled the
Earth, the planet, with high explosives and set
it off, and when it was exploded the piece that
you and I today call the moon was tossed out
here into space and it rotated around the Earth.
It still rotates around the Earth; it came from
the Earth; it was blasted right off the Earth.
And as it was blasted right off the Earth, it
turned over and over and over and all of the
water that was on it stayed with the earth. So
that the piece that was blasted out there has no
water on it today, and because it has no water
on it it has no civilization on it, has no life
on it. You can't have life where there's no
water there's no life; where there's no life
there's no civilization. Can you understand
that? So this dead piece, called the moon by us
today, turning over and over and over, lost all
of its water, all of the water coming with this
piece. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad told us
that this piece, that the earth, that we
remained on, shifted, dropped thirty-six
thousand miles in the pocket that we remained
in. And as it dropped and all of water came
with it, that left a situation in which today
the Earth that we now live on weighs six
sextillion tons. The weight of it is six
sextillion tons. And as it makes its way around
the sun, the strong power of the sun's rays
striking the equator causes the planet to turn
on its own axis at the speed 10371/3 miles per
hour. And he teaches us that the square mileage
of the Earth is 196,940,000 square miles which
means only 57,255,000 square miles of land stuck
up out of 139,685,000 square miles of water.
Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is covered
with water. Part of the water that left the
moon is here with the Earth. So you say since
it's the natural law for water to seek its own
level, why doesn't it overrun the land? The
Honorable Elijah Muhammad says that as the Earth
speeds around the sun turning on its axis
10371/3 miles per hour it creates gravity and
the strong attracting power of the sun pulls on
the waters of the Earth, drawing them up into
the Earth's atmosphere in fine mist that the
naked eye can hardly detect. As this water
gathers into the Earth's atmosphere it then
distills and comes back to Earth. When it gets
heavier than the atmosphere in which it is, it
distills and comes back to the Earth in the form
of water, rain, hail, or snow. All of the water
that you see coming out of the sky went up into
the sky. Everything that's coming down on the
Earth got up thee by leaving the Earth. Do you
understand? And he teaches us that it comes
back down in the form of hail or rain or snow or
whatever else you have, depending upon the
temperature of the current atmosphere that it
was in. He says that at night the gravitational
pull of the moon takes over, and, because the
power of the moon is not as great as that of the
sun, once the attracting power of the sun is
absent at night the moon takes over, but since
it can't pull the waters up like the sun does,
it still has that magnetic pull and it causes
the waves that you see out there on the ocean to
churn. It is the moon that does that; the moon
makes the waves go up and down. It never lets
them level out. If they leveled out the water
would overrun the land. It also causes the
shifting of the tide. This is the pull of the
moon upon the waters of the Earth. If it
weren't for the attracting powers of the sun and
the moo upon the Earth, the waters would overrun
the land and drown out civilization. All of
this was done by man himself, not some Mystery
God. A black man set this up. And you and I
have been running around in the trap that the
white man put us in, thinking that the only one
who can do anything is a Mystery God and what
the Mystery God doesn't do the white man does.
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad says that
all the time that this was going on there was no
white man. The white man was nowhere on the
scene. He says that when the moon was blasted
away and we came along with the Earth, one tribe
was in fact destroyed. Prior to the time that
the explosion took place there were thirteen
tribes. In the explosion set off sixty-six
trillion years ago the thirteenth tribe was
destroyed and then all of the time down through
the wheel of time since then there were twelve
tribes until six thousand years ago. And six
thousand years ago, a scientist named Yacub
created another tribe on this Earth.
Understand, prior to the time the
explosion took place, there were thirteen
tribes, but the thirteenth tribe was destroyed
in that explosion and then six thousand years
ago another tribe came on the scene. It was
made different from all of the twelve tribes
that were here when it arrived. A new tribe, a
weak tribe, a wicked tribe, a devilish tribe, a
diabolical tribe, a tribe that is devilish by
nature. So that before they got on the scene,
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad says that when we
came with the Earth, the oldest city on the
Earth is the Holy City, Mecca, in Arabia. Mecca
is the oldest city on Earth. Mecca is the city
that is forbidden. NO one can go there but the
black man. No one can go there but the Muslims.
No one can go there but the believer. NO one
can go there but the righteous. And at Mecca
are kept the records of history that go on back
to the beginning of time. He says that fifty
thousand years ago another scientist named
Shabazz became angry with the scientists of his
day. He wanted to bring about a tougher people.
He wanted the people to undergo a form of life
that would make them tough and hard, and the
other scientists wouldn't agree with him. So
this scientist named Shabazz took his family
and wandered down into the jungles of Africa.
Prior to that time no one lived in the jungles
of Africa. Our people were soft; they were
black but they were soft and delicate, fine.
They had straight hair. Right here on this
Earth you find some of them look like that
today. They are black as night, but their hair
is like silk, and originally all our people had
that kind of hair. But this scientist took his
family down into the jungles of Africa, and
living in the open, living a jungle life, eating
all kinds of food had an effect on the
appearance of our people. Actually living in
the rough climate, our hair became stiff, like
it is now. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad says
that the only hair that the black man has today
that looks now like it looked prior to fifty
thousand years ago is your and my eyebrows.
Right here, you notice, all Negroes has straight
-I don't care how nappy their hair is -they have
straight eyebrows. When you see a
nappy-hair-eyebrowed Negro [chuckle] you got
somebody. But all of this took place back in
history, and everything The Honorable Elijah
Muhammad teaches is based on history. Now then,
where does this white man come in?
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad says that
the wise black man who was a master of science
never wrote his history like it is written
today, of the past. The wise black man in that
day wrote his history in the future. The
Honorable Elijah Muhammad says that the
circumference of the Earth is 24,896 miles,
approximately 25,000 miles. So when he says the
wise black man of the East writes history a year
of every mile, he writes history to last for
25,000 years -not in the past, but in the
future. He says that on this Earth there are
wise black men who can tune in and tell what's
going to happen in the future just as clear
-they can see ahead just as clear -as they can
see in the past. And every 25,000 years he says
that civilization reaches its peak, or reaches
its perfection. At this time the wise black man
can hear a pin drop anywhere on he planet Earth.
And they sit down and write history to last for
25,000 years. After this history expires they
put it in a vault at the Holy City, Mecca, and
write a new a new history. This has been going
on and on and on. So, in the year one of the
cycle in which we now live, he says that in the
East there are twenty-four wise men. They're
spoken of in the Bible as twenty-four elders or
twenty-four prophets or twenty-four scientists
or twenty-four imams. Twelve of them are major
and twelve of them are minor. So The Honorable
Elijah Muhammad says that these twenty-three men
are called together by this one, which makes
twenty-four. And these twenty-four, these
twenty-three presided over by the twenty-fourth,
are spoken of in the Book of Revelation where
John said he had a vision in heaven where there
was a throne, and around the throne were
twenty-four seats and on the seats sat
twenty-four elders. These twenty-four elders
are called angels. They are actually
twenty-four wise black men who live right here
on this Earth, but no one knows who they are.
At the end of every 25,000 years this one calls
all of them into conference, and they sit down
at the Holy City, Mecca, and he informs them
that the history of the past 25,000 years has
expired and it's time to write a new history.
So these twenty-four, these scientists, begin to
tune in on the population of the planet Earth
and he says that back in his day -at that time
there were five billion people on this Earth
-all of them black, not a white man in sight
-five billion people -not a white man in sight,
so he says that when these twenty-four
scientists begin to tune in, they look down
through the wheel of time. they can tell not
only what the people on this Earth are thinking,
but they can tell what their children are
thinking, what the unborn children's children
are thinking, what the unborn children's
children are thinking. They can look right down
through the wheel of time and tell
minute-by-minute, hour-by-hour, day-by-day,
week-by-week, monthly-by-month, year-by-year,
for 25,000 years exactly what is going to take
place. And they discovered that in the year
8400 to come it would register that among five
billion black people, seventy percent would be
satisfied and thirty percent would be
dissatisfied. And out of that thirty percent
would be born a wise black scientist name Yacub,
and Yacub would teach among these thirty percent
dissatisfied form whom he would come, and create
a new race, start a new world, and a new
civilization that would rule this Earth for six
thousand years to come. So they brought these
findings back to the king and they were put in a
book. And by the way, that which is written to
last 25,000 years is called the Holy Koran.
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad said that
this was put into the history and then when the
year 8400 came, Yacub was born. When Yucab
reached the age of six years he was playing in
the sand one day with two pieces of metal, two
pieces of steel, at which time he discovered
what is known as the law of magnetism: that
unlike attracts and like repels. Two objects
that are alike repel each other like two women
repel each other, but man and woman attract each
other. Unlike attracts and like repels. Yacub
discovered this. So Yacub knew that all he had
to do was make a man unlike any other man on
this Earth and because he would be different he
would attract all other people. Then he could
teach this man a science call tricknology, which
is a science of tricks and lies, and this weak
man would be able to use that science to trick
and rob and rule the world. So Yacub turned to
his uncle and said, "When I grow up I'm going to
make a man who will rule you." And Yacub's
uncle said,"What can you make other than that
which will cause bloodshed and wickedness in the
land?" And Yacub pointed to his head and said,"
I know that which you know not." Yacub was born
with a determined idea to make this man because
it had been predicted 8400 years prior to his
birth that he would be born to do this work. So
he was born with this idea in him, and when his
uncle realized that this was he about whom it
had been prophesied his uncle submitted. The
Honorable Elijah Muhammad said that Yacub went
to school in the East; he studied the
astronomical sciences, mathematical sciences,
and the germination of man. He discovered that
in the black man there are two germs. IN the
black man there's a brown man. In the black
man, or the black germ, which is a strong germ,
there's a weak germ, a brown germ. Yacub was
the first one to discover this and Yacub knew
that by separating that brown one from the black
one, and then by grafting the brown one from the
black one so that it became lighter and lighter,
it would eventually reach its lightest stage
which is known as white. And when it got to
that stage it would be weak, and because it was
weak it would be susceptible to wickedness. And
then Yacub could take that weak man that he made
and teach him how to lie and rob and cheat and
thereby become the ruler of all the rest of the
So The Honorable Elijah Muhammad teaches
us that Yacub began to preach at the age of
sixteen. He began to preach all over Arabia in
the East. He preached among the thirty percent
who were dissatisfied and got many of them to
follow him. As they began to listen to Yacub's
teachings and believe them, his teachings
spread, his followers grew, and it created
confusion in the land. So The Honorable Elijah
Muhammad says that so much confusion came into
existence over there that they threw yacub's
followers in jail, and as fast as they would
throw them in jail they taught more people. So
the teachings spread in jail. Finally yacub was
put in jail, under an alias. And one day, The
Honorable Elijah Muhammad says, the thing began
to get out of hand and the authorities went to
the king and told him that they couldn't control
these people, but that they had the leader of
the people in jail right now, and the king said,
"Take me to him."
And when the king went to the jail where
Yacub was, he greeted Yacub with
"As-Salaam-Alaikum, Mr. Yacub" -I know you're
Mr. Yacub -and Yacub said, "Wa-Alaikum-Salaam"
-I am Yacub! And the king said, "Look, I came
to make an agreement with you. I know that you
are the one that it is written or predicted
would be on the scene in this day and would
create a new race, ant there is nothing we can
do to stop you. But in order for us to have
peace we want to make an agreement with you. In
order to stop the confusion and for there to be
some peace in the land, we want you to agree to
take all who will follow you and exile
yourselves out on an island in the Aegean Sea."
Yacub told them, "I'll go. But you've
got to give me everything that I will need to
bring into existence a new civilization. You've
got to give me everything I'll need. You've got
to supply me with everything I need for the next
twenty years." And The honorable Elijah
Muhammad says that the king agreed with Yacub,
the government of that day agreed to supply
Yacub and his followers with everything they
needed for twenty years. And he says that he
gets this from the Bible where it says Jacob
wrestled with the angel. Jacob was Yacub, and
the angel that Jacob wrestled with wasn't God,
it was the government of that day. "Angel only
means "a power," or somebody with power. When a
man has his wings clipped, you say that he has
lost his power, lost his position. So wings
only mean a position of power entrapped him. So
when it says Jacob wrestled with an
angel,"angel" is only used as a symbol to hide
the one he was really wrestling with. Jacob was
wrestling with the government of that day. He
made the government of that day give him
everything he needed to last him and his
followers for twenty years, just like The
Honorable Elijah Muhammad is telling the
government of this day that they've got to give
us everything that we need in our own separate
territory to last us for twenty to twenty-five
years. You say, well, The Honorable Elijah
Muhammad teaches us that Yacub agreed, the
government agreed, Yacub took all of his
followers down to the sea. The Honorable Elijah
Muhammad says that Yacub took 59,999 of his
followers down to the seaside, with himself
making 60,000. He piled them in boats and took
them out to an island in the Aegean Sea called
Pelan. In the Bible it's called Patmos. When
you read in the Book of Revelation where John,
on the island of Patmos, heard the word of the
Lord, that is Yacub. What was John doing on the
island of Patmos? John was Yacub. John was out
there getting ready to make a new race, he said,
for the word of the Lord. What was the word of
the Lord? The word was that in the year 8400 a
new man would be made, a new race world be made.
And when Yacub and his followers got out there
his followers realized that Yacub was wiser than
any man of his day, and they recognized him as a
god; he was a god to them. So when you get to
the place in the Bible where it says, "And God
said, 'Let us make man,'" that was Yacub too,
not the Supreme Being. It wasn't the Supreme
Being who made the sun who said, "Let us make
man." When the Supreme Being made the sun he
said, "Let there be light." He said He was
supreme, He was independent, He needed no help,
no associates. But when it came to making a
man, that god said, "Let us make man." He
didn't speak with independence, because there
were two different gods. God the Supreme Being
made the light. His word is "be"; that's how He
makes things. But Yacub, who was lesser god,
said to 59,999 of his followers, "Let us make
man, let us make a man in our image, in our
likeness. We're going to make a white man." It
was Yacub talking: "Make him in our image and in
our likeness, and give him dominion over the
fowl of the air and the fish of the sea and the
creatures of the land. And we'll call him
Adam." It's only a name for the white man. The
white man has taken mastery over the air, his
airplanes rule the sky, his submarines and ships
rule the sea, his armies rule the land. This
was the man that was made six thousand years ago
and the purpose for making him was so he could
rule the world for six thousand years. That's
the white man.
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad says that
first thing Yacub did was to get his ministers,
doctors, nurses, and cremators together. He
gave them the laws because he had to set up a
birth control law. He told the doctors whenever
two black ones come to him to get married to
stick a needle in their veins, take some blood,
and go back and tell them that their blood
doesn't match so that they can't marry. He also
said when a black one and a brown one come, let
them get married, or if two brown ones come let
them get married. Then he told the nurse nine
months after they're married, when you're ready
to deliver their child, if it's a black child,
put a needle in its brain and feed it to a wild
animal or give it to the cremator. Let it be
destroyed. But if it's a brown child, take that
child to the mother and tell her that this is
going to be a great man when he grows up because
