The Nation | Chicago Reader

The Nation

A feature subtitled “A Story of the Nation of Islam,” produced, directed, and written by Juney Smith. Providing an alternative view to Spike Lee's Malcolm X—it's a much more accurate if dramatically and cinematically somewhat less pungent telling of the complex story—it concentrates on Elijah Muhammad's relationship with Fard Muhammad as well as his influence on Malcolm X, Wallace Muhammad, and Louis Farrakhan; it also deals with the influence of various women on the Black Muslim movement. With Reed McCants, Michael Whaley, Smoky Campbell, and Ben Guillory.
