Khalid Muhammad, a former spokesman for the Nation of Islam, spoke to

an audience at Howard University. Late last year, Mr. Muhammad drew

criticism for a speech he delivered at Kean College in New Jersey.

Some considered the remarks he made to be racist and anti-Semitic.

He was later criticized by Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.

Mr. Muhammad’s speech comes a few days after he visited the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC. A separatist, Mr. Muhammad argued

that enslavement of Africans was equivalent to the Jewish holocaust

in Europe and is a black holocaust.

Before Mr. Muhammad spoke, a number of speakers prayed, sang and

spoke. Many speakers used inflammatory rhetoric. During the final

moments of the event, participants asked the audience to contribute

to the Nation of Islam. close
