A documentary featuring Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam and noted antisemite, will be available to Netflix customers in August.
The 2014 film, “The Honourable Minister Louis Farrakhan: My Life’s Journey Through Music,” was produced by Farrakhan’s son and profiles the Nation of Islam leader’s life as an extreme and polarizing figure.
According to a list of newly available films on Netflix, the documentary will be available Wednesday.
Farrakhan, who organized the 1995 Million Man March in Washington, D.C., is infamous for antisemitic and other bigoted statements made over the decades. For example, in 1972, he said that Jews were “in control of the media.” In 1984, he again tooted this Orwellian horn and pronounced that “Hitler was a very great man.”
According to Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt, Farrakhan’s “lacerating speeches over more than three decades and more from his pulpit and perch at the Nation of Islam have repeatedly placed Jews at the center of conspiracy theories blaming them for everything from controlling the banks and media to engineering the slave trade.”
