Chapter Summary

This chapter highlights the numerous Islamic organizations that were functioning in the ten years after Malcolm X’s murder. These organizations included several new Sunni groups that had been deeply inspired by, on the one hand, Malcolm and the Nation of Islam and, on the other, international Pan-Islamic movements. Non-orthodox Muslims also experienced a resurgence during this time period, both in terms of individual leaders and mystics and organizations. The Nation of Islam, for example, witnessed a significant revival, drawing in thousands of new converts and gaining unprecedented influence in United States culture in the years leading up to Elijah Muhammad’s death in 1975.
