    NOI Series: Askia Muhammad, 1st Muslim Editor of Muhammad Speaks Newspaper

    in Culture

    The Allah Team Radio presents: The History of the NOI Series


    An Interview with ASKIA MUHAMMAD


    First Muslim Editor of the Muhammad Speaks Newspaper


    Bro. Askia Muhammad was born in Mississippi, grew up in Los Angeles, and attended college at St. Jose State during the revolutionary years of the late 1960s along with his peers future Olympians Tommy Smith and John Carlos famous for putting up “the Black Fist salute”.


    Askia published an underground newspaper to document the conscious activity of the campus and the Bay Area, including conducting landmark interviews with “The Soledad Brothers” and the trial of Angela Davis.


    In 1968 he joined the NOI as “Charles 67X” at Mosque No. 26 in San Francisco, and became a contributor for the Muhammad Speaks Newspaper. Prior, all Editors or professional staff of MS Newspaper were “Lost-Founds”. The Most Hon. Elijah Muhammad took strong interest in Askia and summoned him to Chicago and tutored him to be the First Muslim Editor in 1973 of the Muhammad Speaks Newspaper.


    In 1975 after the departure of Elijah Muhammad, Askia was dismissed from his post by new leader Imam W.D. Mohammed who authorized an article “Elijah Is Not a Divine Man” in which Askia wrote a rebuttal and was publicly challenged to a debate by the new Leader.


    Afterwards Askia took a position with the Chicago Defender and became its White House correspondent in Washington, DC. In 1979 Askia would later assist the Hon. Min. Louis Farrakhan and late Editor Wali Muhammad with the establishing of The Final Call Newspaper.


    Join us for this historic interview as journalist Bro. Askia Muhammad walks us through important events of his travels.

    NOI Series: Ali S. Muhammad, Boxing Promoter of Muhammad Ali's Last Fight

    in Culture

    An EXCLUSIVE Interview with ALI S. MUHAMMAD


    Boxing Promoter of Muhammad Ali's Last Fight, The Drama in Bahama


    In 1970, Ali S. Muhammad joined Muhammad’s Mosque #15 in Atlanta as James X. Cornelius under the Leadership of the Most Hon. Elijah Muhammad.


    As an owner of a car lot, he provided transportation for Mosque #15 as well as vehicles to members of the F.O.I.for the NOI Fish program that transported Whiting H&G Fish to local Atlanta communities. 


    In his book, “The Last Punch,” Ali chronicled the whirlwind events of his life that led to him meeting Muhammad Ali  becoming President of Sports Internationale Ltd


    In 2013, he made his book a dramatic major motion picture “The Last Punch” that tells the story of how Ali, the film maker, used his street hustling skills to overcome the odds of being on the run from the FBI to becoming a promoter of a major boxing match featuring the biggest name in the fight game – Muhammad Ali.


    “The Drama in the Bahama” became a reality in spite of many seemingly insurmountable obstacles that conspired against it being pulled off. The movie captures the behind the scenes maneuvering and mind games that were an integral part of bringing a major fight into being.


    Today Ali S. Muhammad is a businessman and a Muslim in the NOI under the Hon. Minister Louis Farrakhan.
