This documentary chronicles the creation, rise and transition of Elijah Muhammad's Nation of Islam. A movement that challenged black people to reclaim their lost identity.
As Americans, both black and white, sacrificed life and property to end segregation, Elijah Muhammad told blacks to "...stop begging the white man for what you can do for your self," and preached a unique brand of separation with a do-for-self philosophy.
While Malcolm X and Muhammad Ali exemplified the uncompromising stance that the Nation of Islam maintained, the movement would soon be heading for an abrupt change.
Upon the death of Elijah, his son, Wallace Muhammad became the new leader and ushered in a new thinking. Through honest dialogue with original members of the Nation of Islam, we get an in-depth look at life after Elijah Muhammad.
In the wake of Elijah's death did the movement fall into a leadership crisis with the charasmatic personality of Louis Farrakhan, or did the original members progress towards universal humanity?
