In this edition, of The Final Call Newspaper, The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan speaks on the subject of “Let My People Go”. This article is an edited excerpt of a message he delivered on January 10, 1982, in the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California. In this section, Minister Farrakhan speaks on his assignment given to him by The Honorable Elijah Muhammad. “My task, as I see it, is to properly represent the Honorable Elijah Muhammad to Black people in America and throughout the world. Why must Elijah Muhammad be properly represented? It is because that man and that man alone holds the key to our victory over mental death and our victory over the hell that we have suffered in our 400-year sojourn in America. Since Elijah Muhammad is such an important man to our future and the future of the world, it is necessary, it is proper, that he be properly understood.” 

“It is necessary and vitally important that his word, his teachings, be properly understood by us all that we may act on the good counsel and advice that he gives to us, and save our lives and the lives of our families.  It is not in the interest of our enemies that “The Messianic Figure” among us be properly understood.  It is not in the interest of the United States government and her agencies that any true leadership for Black people be properly understood or seen in a proper light; therefore, this government and her agencies have worked night and day to destroy the image of proper leadership for us, and they have worked to give us leaders that they themselves control.  The direction that these leaders travel in is a direction given by the very enemy that we should be seeking to get away from.”
