During the 1960s James Baldwin, a famous literary author and social commentator, once observed and questioned how a contemporary and great leader was
able to do what generations of welfare workers and committees and resolutions and reports and housing projects and playgrounds have failed to do: to heal and redeem drunkards and junkies, to convert people who have come out of prison and to keep them out, to make men chaste and women virtuous, and to invest both the male and the female with a pride and a serenity that hang about them like an unfailing light. He has done all these things, which our Christian church has spectacularly failed to do. 
The leader was the Honorable Elijah Muhammad.
For over forty years Muhammad’s life was an expression of unflinching devotion to the improvement of the lives of African Americans.

All praises are due to Allah

The Honorable Elijah Muhammad Commemorative Center takes time to recognize the birth anniversary of Sister Clara Muhammad, the wife of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and the first lady of the Nation of Islam
Clara was born on November 2, 1899 in Cordele, Georgia to Quarters and Mary Lou Evans. Clara, her two brothers and two sisters, grew up on their parents’ ranch. They attended public school and worked in the fields. Clara's mother’s family the Thomas’s were known for their good Samaritan characteristics and their quest and support for education. These traits helped shape the great woman that Clara later became.
