Film Screening: "Bilalian"
Director: Aminah Abdul-Jabbaar

Summary: Born into the Nation of Islam in the last year of Elijah Muhammad's life, Aminah grew up believing that she was "Bilalian" not "black." This film, which features appearances by Elijah Muhammad, Louis Farrakhan, Malcolm X, and former members of the Nation of Islam, documents the struggle of the African American Muslim community to establish and transform their racial and religious identity.
