Event Details

In Killing the Messenger, award-winning investigative reporter Thomas Peele examines the genesis and development of the Black Muslim movement in America including the Black Muslim organization in Oakland run by Yusuf Bey who built it through a business called Your Black Muslim Bakery. Peele exposes how Bey’s radical and violent group was responsible for the killing of journalist Chauncey Bailey -- a brazen murder that galvanized journalists dedicated to ensuring that justice was served in the slaying of their colleague. Well-known journalist Earl Caldwell from WBAI’s The Caldwell Chronicle, will join Peele in conversation.

 

Following all Word Rapport programs, attendees will have the opportunity to purchase the participants’ books and have them signed.
