Dr. Umar Johnson on why three chapters were removed from Malcolm’s autobiography

Dr. Umar Johnson is a 37-year old Doctor of Clinical Psychology, Nationally Certified School Psychologist, Certified K-12 School Principal, activist, orator and political scientist. He practices psychology privately in Pennsylvania and also serves as a special education evaluator. He specializes in working with children who are suicidal, depressed and/or violent. Johnson also trains educators and mental health technicians in a variety of psycho-educational topics that include Attention Deficit Disorder and other disruptive behavior disorders.

Dr. Johnson is considered by many to be an expert on how learning disabilities affect black children and how to help schools and parents use behavior therapy to modify behaviors before they become disruptive.  He has tried to raise money to start a school for around one thousand Black boys called the Frederick Douglass Marcus Garvey Academy.

Dr. Johnson is considered a Pan-Africanist and is an follower of the teachings of Marcus Garvey, a Jamaican Pan-Africanist who organized a return to Africa movement in the early 1900’s. While Johnson does not call for a separatist solution to help solve the myriad of issues faces by blacks in America, he does believe something significant must be done.

While much of Johnson’s work focuses on education, Johnson also ventures into other issues that affect Blacks in America. In this talk, Johnson addresses the lack of Black leadership since the assassinations of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr., asserting that no new leaders have taken their place because schools and churches have not put forth a genuine effort to train children and young people to be leaders.  He also reveals the warning Malcolm X got prior to his death as well as the Nation of Islam’s connection to government agents.  In his discussion of little known facts, Johnson reveals that three chapters were removed from Malcolm X’s biography and the motivation behind their removal.  There are also many other details about the deaths of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr.

    A black man called for a million black men and nearly two million black men showed up on October 16th, 1995. A black man toured the country from the late 80’s till 1995 warning black men to stop the killing. A black man went on a world tour in 1996 wherin he was recieved a head of state in African, Arab and Asians nations. A black man has been a catalyst for thousands of black men and women changing their lives for the better.

    That Black man’s name is Louis Farrakhan and if that is not signs of leadership I don’t know what is.

    We love to worship dead leaders and romanticize them while ignoring living leadership among us until they are dead too… then they can get some praise.

    So, we can’t honestly say there has beenno leadership since MLK/Malcolm.

    Not everyone wants to be a Muslim. MIN. Farrakhan is a great leader he would be a superior leader if he were not a Muslim. Religion is divisive. I believe Malcolm was under appreciated because of his relationship and dedication to Islam and Elijah Mohammad.

    I agree with your sentiment that “religion” is divisive. The Hon. Louis Farrakhan had his largest gathering at nearly 2 million men (and more via television) yet he didn’t tell one soul to become a Muslim/join the Nation. The Minister is not about “religion” in the divisive sense. He is trying to unite us all based on the commonalities we share in the essense.

    Thanks for responding.

    Mustafaa Abdul Muhammad Yes, from what I understand about the NOI it is fully independent of white America – which is what we need globally. I admire the positive influence the NOI has on men and women, and its ability to restore broken lives. However, one has to become a Muslim to add to and partake of the many great aspects of the NOI. And within that frame lies yet another divide of our people.
