In a rare public appearance, Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan urged black Americans to separate from mainstream culture to establish and support their own community. Nearly eight months after delivering what was thought to be his farewell speech, a smiling Farrakhan strode onstage at the Atlanta Civic Center Tuesday night to an applauding and cheering audience of nearly 5,000. He warned the crowd not to be distracted by the successes of recent decades. "We have to come out of the thinking of a slave and come into the thinking and acting of free men and women," Farrakhan said. "We cannot depend on others for what the horrible condition of our people demands now that we do for ourselves."
