What's Happening In Your World
Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan sometimes seems so healthy, strong and vibrant that we believe he is virtually indestructible.  But this is not always the case, especially when age starts to take  its toll on the body.  Minister Farrakhan was recently hospitalized in the Virgin Islands for a fever, with the issue being serious enough for him to seek medical care. Farrakhan representative Akbar Muhammed says Farrakhan experienced a ”low-grade fever.”  He says that the minister is fine after going to St. Thomas Hospital and is going to be OK.   The Nation of Islam leader is now 79 years old and was set to give a speech in St. Croix.  The speech has been canceled, but he is expected to visit a prison in the area this Wednesday. The stop was part of a tour of the Carribean Islands, including Barbados, Dominica, and the Bahamas.  This is not the first time that the minister has had health problems.  He had prostate surgery in 2000 and stayed in the hospital for five weeks back in 2007.   In spite of these challenges, Farrakhan has spoken firm and directly on principles of black independence and self-reliance.  He is a controversial figure to some, but loved around the world for his work. He currently resides in Chicago.
