This work is the first to examine the educational philosophy of Elijah Muhammad, the patriarch of the Nation of Islam and a pivotal leader in America's history. This timely book outlines Elijah Muhammad's educational ideas in relation to critical pedagogy, multicultural education, and critical white studies, a branch of critical race theory popularized in the mid-1970s that reaches across disciplines to explore the relationship among race, the justice system, and society. The Educational Philosophy of Elijah Muhammad: Education for a New World is a must-read for those dedicated to creating a new paradigm that can transform individuals, schools, societies, and the world.
Features new to this completely revised third edition include a more in-depth discussion of critical educational theory as it relates to the teachings of Elijah Muhammad and foreword by world renowned curriculum theorist William Pinar.
