This mild-looking man is…the most powerful Black man in America. He offers a new way of life. Muhammad prompts even his severest critics to agree when he says he attacks “traditional reasons the Negro race is weak.”

Reader’s Digest

Elijah Muhammad has been able to do what generations of welfare workers and committees and resolutions and reports and housing projects and playgrounds have failed to do. …He has done all these things, which our Christian church has spectacularly failed to do.

James Baldwin in his book, The Fire Next Time

Alone of all the Negro leaders Elijah Muhammad has a vivid awareness of the vital need of a new birth in any drastic human transformation, and he alone mastered the technique of staging a new identity…It is worth remembering that what Elijah Muhammad is doing to the Negro is, in a sense, what America has done to the immigrant from Europe.

New York Times Magazine

Muhammad’s movement is unique in that it has thrived outside the Christian tradition and the Protestant community. White Americans have brought this on themselves; and the responsibility can’t be evaded by attacking the Muslims.

Former Presidential Assistant and Former Harvard Professor,
Arthur J. Schlesinger, Jr. in Esquire Magazine

Muhammad, a master psychologist, offers identification, definition and belonging to all those who seek it, and in return gets a loyalty, obedience and discipline which staggers the imagination.

Jet Magazine

Muhammad gives his followers that ineffable sense of being, sense of power that binds them together.
