This chapter explores the popularization of historical narratives of the members of the Nation of Islam, both intellectuals and rank and file, which linked the history of black people to the world of Islam. These narratives demonstrate Afro-Eurasian Islamic figures, places, names, secular traditions, and mythologies. They attempt to cut the links between Christianity and black people, and bring to light what it meant to be a Muslim for members of the Nation of Islam.

Keywords:   historical narratives, Nation of Islam, intellectuals, rank and file, black people, Islam, Afro-Eurasian, Christianity, Muslim
