As-Salaamu ‘Alaikum Beloved Brothers & Sisters

If I may, I would like to introduce you to a personage from American Black History with whom you may or may not be familiar.

Most people erroneously credit Jackie Robinson with being the first Black person to break the color barrier in major league baseball. Few people know of Moses Fleetwood Walker who, according to, was the “first African-American to play in Major Leagues.”

However, even fewer people know of Walker’s dedication to the struggle for equal rights among Black people.

Walker penned a treatise in 1908, wherein he stated, “The only solution to America’s race problem is the entire separation by emigration of the Negro from America.”

You know this sounds like it came from the mouth of Our Beloved Messenger, The Honourable Elijah Muhammad (May the Peace and the Blessings of Allah Forever Be Upon Him).

So, I found the treatise. You can read it in its entirety and for free by clicking the following link.

“Our Home Colony: A Treatise On The Past, Present And Future Of The Negro From America”
