In The Name Of Allah: A History of Clarence 13X and The Five Percenters is the first definitive history every written about this powerful youth movement. Thousands of young Blacks and Latinos have pledged allegiance to the philosophy of the Five Percenters. Their influence has permeated throughout the streets of urban America, the school system, rap music and the penal institutions. The origins of the Five Percenters can be traced to its founder the late Clarence 13X Smith a.k.a. Allah. A former member of Elijah Muhammad's Nation of Islam, he studied under Minister Malcolm X at the Harlem Mosque in the early 60's. He left the organization and subsequently founded a youth movement based on the core doctrine of the NOI and his own lessons referred to as Supreme Mathematics and Supreme Alphabets. The name and ideology of the Five Percenters are derived from NOI teachings that describe the population into three categories. The 85% are misled to believe in a mystery god, the 10% teach lies to master the poor and superstitious, and alas the 5% are the poor righteous teachers of freedom, justice and equality who teach that the true and living God is the Black Man of Asia. During his short reign as leader of the Five Percenters, Clarence 13X (Allah) faced many challenges but accomplished many objectives. Unfortunately in June of 1969, he was gunned down by unknown assassins. He left a legacy of countless youth who embraced the concepts of the Five Percenters which are evident in the conscious youth of today that identify with his teachings. Until now, there has yet to be a comprehensive history written in regard to the man called Allah and the Five Percenters. This information has now been compiled and presented as an anthology by a member of the movement over the past 25 years. The Name of Allah: A History of Clarence 13X and the Five Percenters is a must have for anyone who desires to know more about the dynamic movement.
