Farrakhan Alex Haley
Did you know that during his World Friendship Tour III in 1997, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan discovered that Alex Haley desired to build a small mosque for the residents in Juffureh, a Muslim village in The Gambia? Mr. Haley’s genealogical research led him there, where he discovered his paternal ancestry. Mr. Haley gave some money to the former government of The Gambia, however, the project never emerged. Minister Farrakhan promised the people of Juffureh that he would fulfill Alex Haley’s vision and build not only a mosque, but a school as well. He made his word bond and the opening ceremony of The Alex Haley Mosque and School Complex was held on June 25, 1999.
