Leader of the Nation of Islam Louis Farrakhan will be arriving in Barbados on Sunday for a week’s visit as part of the second phase of a Caribbean tour.
The outspoken religious and social leader will be having a number of meetings with various sectors including business, students and the general public.
The announcement of his visit was made today at the Clement Payne Centre by the local organising committee headed by President of the Clement Payne Movement, David Comissiong, leading officer Thelma Gill-Barnett and Leader of the Nation of Islam study group in Barbados, Miles Muhammad.
Comissiong said Farrakhan, 80, was on a five nation Caribbean tour which began today in Grenada and will include Barbados, Dominica, the U.S Virgin Islands, Belize and Bahamas.
“This is a historic tour that holds special significance for Barbados and the Caribbean. It comes at a time when the world is enmeshed in a civilisation crisis...That crisis has impacted very severely on Caribbean nations and people and therefore this is a time when we especially need the motivational message of Minister Farrakhan”, said Comissiong.
