Bilalian News - Vol.1, No.46 (September 24, 1976)


Condition: See description

Chicago: Muhammad's Temple No.2, 1976. First Edition. Paperback. Bilalian News was the successor publication to Elijah Muhammad's long-running Muhammad Speaks, the publishing organ of the Nation of Islam. Following his death in 1974, Muhammad's son and successor Warith Dean Muhammad re-named the paper in 1975 in reference to Bilial ibn Rabah, a black Ethiopian slave who was the first known African follower of the prophet Muhammad. Published from the Chicago-based Muhammad's Temple of Islam No.2, Bilalian News published a mix of local, national, and world events, radical politics, and spirituality, with periodic articles on sporting and cultural events of note. The paper was eventually re-named in 1981, becoming World Muslim News and eventually given the name Muslim Journal, which is still in circulation today. In our experience, individual issues or significant groups are both scarce in commerce. Tabloid (38.5cm); photo-illustrated newsprint wrappers; 32pp; illus. Faint horizontal fold smoothed out at center, light toning and dustiness to wrappers, with small ink notation at masthead; contents clean; Very Good+ or better.
