As Malcolm X slowly discovered, the separatist ideas that he learned from his mentor, and that he himself had preached from the pulpit, were in sharp contrast to the message of one universal family that was shared by the Muslims of Asia and Africa. To Muslims throughout the world, Malcolm X’s pilgrimage to Mecca later that year represented a symbolic break with the authority of Elijah Muhammad and his version of Islam. END OF A PILGRIMAGE When Malcolm returned from Mecca, he had a new name, El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz, and he was beginning to fear that his former teacher, the man who had lifted him out of ignorance and imprisonment, was a fraud and an opportunist.

I am not sure why he made this decision, for he was not a frightened Negro, as most then were, and many still are today. My father was a big, six-foot-four, very black man. He had only one eye. How he had lost the other one I have never known. He was from Reynolds, Georgia, where he had left school after the third or maybe fourth grade.
