Min. Farrakhan Teaches The Children Photo: Askia Muhammad
“So who are you, Min Farrakhan asked the over 1,000 Central High students seated in the school auditorium.... He then requested and received audience participation in a kind of call and response. He first asked them, “Say it with me, he said. “I’m God. Then he asked them to repeat after him, “I am made in the image and likeness of God.” After that they responded to, “And there is nothing that God can’t do, and there is nothing that I can’t do if I will to do it.” After repeating the Minister’s words, pleased with the revelation they had just received, they erupted with arousing applause.
The youthful 79-year-old Farrakhan eventually turned to the teachers that were in the audience.
Before focusing on them he asked the cameraman to take a photo of the students in the first row. After the photo was taken, he asked the photographer to show the students the photograph. He then asked them, “Who did you look for first? They responded in unison, “Me.”

“That’s what I’m talking about,” Farrakhan exclaimed, “Because if you didn’t see yourself, you’re not interested in the picture.”

"It’s the same with education, the Minister said. “If these children don’t see themselves in what you’re teaching them, they’re not interested in what you’re teaching them,” he said receiving a standing ovation.

"So listen, you (teachers) got to stop telling them how Columbus discovered America. You’ve got to stop telling them that George Washington never told a lie. You have to stop telling them that Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves. Stop lying to the children so they will learn to love what you’re telling them,”
