19-Yr-Old Farrakhan In Jet Mag (1953)

It was only after reading through old Jet Magazines that I stumbled upon this March 5, 1955 Jet magazine with an article about 19-year-old Louis Walcott, who would become Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam. While Walcott would become a recording artist prior to becoming the protege of Malcolm X and fiery orator and leader of Boston’s mosque, his lasting fame would come as religious leader of the Nation of Islam (NOI).
