Earlier this week, Minister Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam, was walking 125th Street — Harlem’s busiest thoroughfare — and calling for a return to morality and accountability to end violence, according to amsterdamnews.com.
“I am in the streets because the people are in the streets suffering, and I will stay in the streets until we have addressed the issue of violence,” Farrakhan told the New York Amsterdam News. ”We want to have peace for our people. Our young people are faced with violence and we want to save our children.”
Farrakhan added: “Pastors, you don’t need to be in the church … imams, you don’t need to be in the mosques—you need to be in the streets.”
