In Harlem, which will be more active in its pursuit of black political and economic independence. ” But before the organization really gets going, Malcolm feels it is time to make a pilgrimage to the Islamic holy city of Mecca. ” 9 Cut off from his sole source of income, Malcolm asks for help from Ella, who has also withdrawn from the Nation. She agrees to finance his pilgrimage to Mecca, and Malcolm expresses his gratitude: “She had played a very significant role in my life. ” When Malcolm applies for a hajj visa, he learns that his status as a Muslim must be approved by Mahmoud Youssef Shawarbi, a Muslim United Nations adviser, who provides Malcolm with contacts in Saudi Arabia.
Although many people gather to listen to him, few convert to Islam, which Malcolm believes has to do with the strict rules—no tobacco, alcohol, or drugs, no dancing, gambling, dating, movies, or sports—but also because they are too weighed down by social, economic, and political struggles to be moved. He begins to understand that for African Americans to be successful, they must be aggressive about helping one another. At this point, the Nation of Islam has limited funds to work with, and Malcolm personally owns nothing except clothes, a watch, and a suitcase.
He learns that the great early civilizations were African, as were the pharaohs and Aesop, the great Western storyteller. He becomes familiar with Black Nationalist thought and comes to understand the extent to which he had been brainwashed by the dominant culture. When he is not reading, Malcolm seeks to convert fellow prisoners to the Nation of Islam. ” He always finds a way to work race into his arguments, whether about Shakespeare or the military, and is pleased when he gets a white minister to admit that Jesus was not white, causing a stir of excitement in the prison.
