Chicago Clippings: Farrakhan leads peacemaking effort in the streets of Chicago | Buzz with that Brother!
‘A life saving movement’
CHICAGO – Imagine sitting on your porch or apartment stoop and a caravan of several Black Chevy Suburbans and Hummers roll up. A security detail and group of 40 to 50 Black men in suits walks down your block. As the group gets closer and closer, some men are carrying copies of The Final Call newspaper.
“How are you doing?” asks a man with a smiling face and outstretched hand. The man speaking is the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam.
Dozens of residents of the city’s Auburn-Gresham neighborhood on July 16 and South Shore neighborhood on July 23 had that experience as the Minister led the Fruit of Islam into South Side streets and hundreds of other Muslim men fanned out across the country in over 100 cities in efforts to bring peace and hope to violence-plagued neighborhoods.
