That's a good read. I'm learning a little more about The Nation over time through real life and Hip Hop. That part of the music that used to be represented more is harder to find nowadays.

I remember passing by their culture centers here in Harlem as a child and Muslims preaching on the sidewalk, they seemed to be one of the things that remained intact over the years through hard economic and social times.

Here's a community center in my neighborhood near 125th st.

I always drive by that place but have never visited it; one day in the Spring/Summer I will stop by and check it out.
