Farrakhan and The Nation of Islam In The Streets Spreading Peace

Minister Louis Farrakhan will host his very first #AskFarrakhan Social Media Town Hall on Wed., September 26, 2012. Below is an essay on the Minister’s work in the community and this ground breaking, first-ever event.

It’s easy to sit on the sidelines and just talk about the violence that’s plaguing the
Black community in cities such as Chicago, New York and New Orleans.

It’s easy to leave a comment online, post a tweet and update your Facebook status
regarding what’s happening in the streets. As a matter of fact, as I write this article someone is probably being shot in your neighborhood. We have enough people reciting the statistics, but who is bringing solutions?

The problem alone cannot be solved from a laptop. It also takes those willing to leave the comfort of their homes to hit the streets and engage those who are killing one another.

The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, a consistent servant of the people for 57 years, has been personally walking different parts of the Windy City in a sincere effort to promote peace in Chicago.

He’s been shaking hands and giving words of guidance to young Black men whom this world may consider hopeless.

Min. Farrakhan’s been doing this for 12 consecutive weeks since mid-July and doesn’t plan to stop anytime soon.
The Fruit of Islam, men of the Nation of Islam, have been following his lead in hitting the streets every week in more than 100 U.S. cities, as well as in Canada, Trinidad, London and South Africa.

“Our work is no longer in the mosques, the churches, the synagogues or our office buildings. We must all dedicate and devote time to the problem in the streets,” said Min. Farrakhan in a letter posted online.

Over the next few days, Minister Farrakhan plans to hit the streets of NewYork. On Sunday, Sept. 23, he spoke to large crowds in Mt. Vernon, The Bronx, and New Rochelle.

From the streets to the tweets….just #AskFarrakhan

Min. Farrakhan has always believed in reaching the masses where they are and he recognizes that we are in the midst of a “social media craze.” Thus, his @LouisFarrakhan account and the Twitter hashtag #AskFarrakhan have become very popular over the past year.

Min. Farrakhan frequently responds to questions from his 85,000 plus Twitter followers. He doesn’t shy away from any topic because he wants to use this tool to raise the consciousness of the people versus engaging in foolery.

Min. Farrakhan will host his first ever #AskFarrakhan Social Media Town Hall webcast live on Wed., September 26, 2012 from The Final Call Administration Building in Chicago, Illinois.

During the live online event to be moderated by journalist Ashahed Muhammad, Min. Farrakhan will answer questions for two hours from Twitter, Facebook and YouTube users.

People want to know his thoughts on Pres. Barack Obama’s first term, the Middle East uproar over the anti-Islamic film, the U.S. economy, the state of Hip-Hop culture, Iran and more.

Min. Farrakhan, affectionately known as “The Minister,” is excited! This is expected to be a 2.0 experience filled with timely guidance and innovative solutions to create real change.

The event is being sponsored by and Also,, the greatest Hip-Hop site in the world, will be streaming it live on their website.
