British journalist spends a day with Nation of Islam spokesperson Khalid Abdul Muhammad in New York, America. Not sure what year this was filmed but I wager it was sometime in the late 90s (Khalid died in 2001).
Bear in mind that the Nation of Islam is not representative of all Muslims in the world. Like Christianity the Muslim religion is divided into many sects based on region/culture.
Malcolm X speaks out at Oxford University. During this period in his life the Nation of Islam was beginning to isolate him from their cause because he was beginning to outshine his predecessor, Elijah Muhammed. Not long after this film Malcolm X took a trip to Mecca, Saudi Arabia, to fulfill his duties as a Muslim. It was there that Malcolm first saw black and white people, all of them Muslim, getting along and behaving without prejudiced and racial views about each other. It was there, at Mecca, where Malcolm immediately changed his mind about blacks having to segregate from whites in America -- that the two races would never be able to reconcile their differences. Malcolm X realized peace and harmony between men of all races could be attained under one god. This point of view, as well as his competing with Elijah Muhammad, was what eventually led to his assassination by members of the Nation of Islam.
