Muhammad Speaks

Muhammad Speaks was one of the most read newspapers produced by an African-American organization. It was the official newspaper of the Nation of Islam from 1960 to 1975, founded by a group of Elijah Muhammad's ministers, including Malcolm X. After Elijah Muhammad's death in 1975, it was renamed several times after Warith Deen Mohammed moved the Nation of Islam into mainstream Sunni Islam, culminating in The Muslim Journal. A number of rival journals were published, including The Final Call under Louis Farrakhan, claiming to continue the message of the original. Nation of Islam leader Elijah Muhammad began the publication on May 1960, its first issue bore the title Some of this Earth to Call Our Else. A weekly publication, it was distributed nationwide by the N. O. I. and covered current events around the world as well as relevant news in African-American communities items concerning the Nation of Islam itself. The paper was sold door-to-door and on street corners by Nation of Islam members, at select newsstands in major cities and in the temples of the Nation of Islam.

In his The Autobiography of Malcolm X, activist Malcolm X claimed to have founded the newspaper, but this has not been independently confirmed. According to the current Nation of Islam, Malcolm X helped create Mr. Muhammad Speaks, a different newspaper distributed locally in New York City. Notably, Mr. Muhammad Speaks and Muhammad Speaks have nearly identical layout and journalistic approach, suggesting that Mr. Muhammad Speaks provided the foundation for Muhammad Speaks, it is believed that Jabir Herbert Muhammad had a hand in starting the paper also. In addition to FOI-based ventures, Askia Muhammad had used the nation's African-American press to publicize the organization and his views. In the 1950s his regular column in the Pittsburgh Courier, at the time the nation's largest black-owned newspaper, generated more letters to the editor than any other feature in the newspaper. Following the death of Elijah Muhammad, his son and successor Warith Deen Muhammad renamed the newspaper Bilalian News in 1976.

The title was a reference to Bilal ibn Rabah, the first known black African follower of the prophet Muhammad. The renaming was part of Warith Deen's project to realign the Nation of Islam with mainstream Sunni Islam; the newspaper was renamed once more in 1981, becoming World Muslim News, was given the name Muslim Journal, still in circulation today. In 1979, Minister Louis Farrakhan founded The Final Call, a newspaper published in Chicago, that serves as the official communications organ of the current Nation of Islam, re-founded in reaction to Warith Deen's reforms; the title derives from the original newspaper of The Nation of Islam, called The Final Call to Islam, published by Elijah Muhummad in the 1940s. The Final Call is the only National Black newspaper in America. There are a number of publications that hold claims to continuing in the tradition of the original paper, such as "Muhammad Speaks Newspaper" published out of Detroit, Michigan, by Minister Levi Karim, one of the same name published by Minister Wasim Muhammad in Hoboken, New Jersey.

The Muhammad Speaks in Detroit and Camden is published by followers of Elijah Muhammad who assert that they hold on to the traditional practices of Elijah Muhammad.

Padonia Township, Brown County, Kansas

Padonia Township is a township in Brown County, Kansas, USA. As of the 2000 census, its population was 259; the Civil Township of Padonia is both a geographic subdivision of Brown County and a form of local government. While the 41-plus square mile area of land is governmentally and the "Township of Padonia," the name most refers colloquially to the grouping of houses and grain elevator. Originating from placed Welsh settlements in 1869, a group of individual residences remains in the original location because the lots are still designated the size to accommodate them. On one- or two-acre plots of land, the owned residences are surrounded by both woods and corn fields; the Sac & Fox Nation of Missouri in Kansas and Nebraska is a property holder in the community, of both farming ground and a former private residence. The limits of the centralized Padonia are marked by town addresses and street signs, which differentiate from the rural street signs of the surrounding area. However, in general the colloquial limits of the "town" extend a bit beyond that, to expand the number of residences from six or seven to upwards of ten.

Voting services were offered in Padonia for local elections up until the last few years, when they were moved to the nearest larger community and county seat, Hiawatha. The Padonia grain elevator was until an independent co-operative owned by Padonia farmers, is now part of Ag Partners of Hiawatha. Like most communities, the agrarian Township of Padonia has a plurality of origins, from its first European settler to the establishment of civic and religious services to its official foundation, and like countless agricultural communities in the Midwest, many of their historic markings seem to recede just as as they were established, leaving nothing but their names as husks to mark their passing. In addition, many of the services that constitute a "town" were closed or incorporated into the surrounding communities Hiawatha; however a quiet part of the world, Padonia's inhabitants don't seem to miss the loss, instead enjoy the rich soil, intermittently wooded land, company of neighbors within its forty-one plus square miles.

The first registered settler in the Civil Township of Padonia was E. R. Cornelison, who made his claim on April 3, 1854. By 1857, enough settlers had joined him that a post office was established on October 20, with Orville Root as its first postmaster. A schoolhouse joined it in 1858, built by a private corporation, it became part of public school's District 13. However, it wasn't until 1869 that the Township of Padonia was founded, by Welsh immigrant and farmer David Evans, its foundation consisted of ten families, all who came from Wales with Evans, who "constitute the best citizens and substantial farmers of this township." Padonia was named after Jessie Padon, a settler in a log hut on the bank of the Walnut, near Schmidt's sawmill. Because of its Welsch origins, Padonia was known as the Welsch Settlement of Padonia Township. While never thickly populated, the 1880 federal census shows a population of 756 citizens in the forty square mile area. In contrast, the actual grouping of houses was, in 1883, called "merely a thick settlement of farm houses."

However, this grouping was at least large enough for a Justice of the Peace, church, and—as mentioned—post office and school. The Justice of the Peace in 1883 was Civil War veteran David Hillyer; the Treasurer, serving his third term, was John E. Davis and member of local Hiawatha Masonic Lodge, No. 35. But the township was never incorporated, so never had a mayor, city council, or public services such as electricity or water; the township's only church, Padonia Christian Church, was completed and dedicated in September 1881, at a total cost of $2,200, had seventy-five members two years in 1883. Historian Cutler argues that these families "consist of some of the most prominent and influential citizens and their families, of Padonia and Hamlin townships", it is still standing today. Padonia contains one cemetery. Notable of this small community is its native daughter 19th-century poet Ellen Palmer Allerton, whose works were compiled in Walls of Corn and Other Poems and Annabel, Other Poems, her poems treat themes of past and present state interest, such as pride in Kansas children and the issue of evolution.
