  The black man in the ghettoes, for instance, has to start self-correcting his own material, moral, andspiritual defects and evils. The black man needs to start his own program to get rid of drunkenness,drug addiction, prostitution. The black man in America has to lift up his own sense of values.

  But gradually we recruited other black people-the "good Christians" whom we "fished" from theirchurches. Then, an increase began in the membership percentage of educated and trained Negroes.

  He was the One to whom the Jews referred as The Messiah, the Christians as The Christ, and theMuslims as The Mahdi.

  Norfolk Prison Colony represented the most enlightened form of prison that I have ever heard of. Inplace of the atmosphere of malicious gossip, perversion, grafting, hateful guards, there was morerelative "culture," as "culture" is interpreted in prisons. A high percentage of the Norfolk PrisonColony inmates went in for "intellectual" things, group discussions, debates, and such. Instructors forthe educational rehabilitation programs came from Harvard, Boston University, and other educationalinstitutions in the area. The visiting rules, far more lenient than other prisons', permitted visitorsalmost every day, and allowed them to stay two hours. You had your choice of sitting alongside yourvisitor, or facing each other.

  But the Muslim world's customs no longer seemed strange to me. My hands now readily plucked upfood from a common dish shared with brother Muslims; I was drinking without hesitation from thesame glass as others; I was washing from the same little pitcher of water; and sleeping with eight or ten others on a mat in the open. I remember one night at Muzdalifa with nothing but the sky overheadI lay awake amid sleeping Muslim brothers and I learned that pilgrims from every land-every color,and class, and rank; high officials and the beggar alike-all snored in the same language.

  As the Christian Crusade once went East, now the Islamic Crusade is going West. With the East-Asiaclosed to Christianity, with Africa rapidly being converted to Islam, with Europe rapidly becomingun-Christian, generally today it is accepted that the "Christian" civilization of America-which ispropping up the white race around the world-is Christianity's remaining strongest bastion.

   Early evenings when we were laying low between jobs, I often went to a Massachusetts Avenuenightclub called the Savoy. And Sophia would telephone me there punctually. Even when we pulledjobs, I would leave from this club, then rush back there after the job. The reason was so that if it wasever necessary, people could testify that they had seen me at just about the time the job was pulled.

  Anyway, we lived for the next two and a half years in Queens, sharing a house of two smallapartments with Brother John AH and his wife of that time. He's now the National Secretary inChicago.
