The Trilogy: Interview with the founders of Nation 19 clothing line


(Blogger’s Note: This is part 3 in a three-part series I am doing on Nation 19 Clothing)

In his illuminating book, Message to the Blackman, the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad writes “Acknowledge and recognize that you are a member of the Creator's nation and act accordingly. This action, in the name of Allah, requires you, as a Muslim, to set an example for the lost-found, your brothers in the wilderness in North America. This requires action and deeds, not words and lip service.”

The buzz for Nation 19 clothing line continues to spread. Supporters receiving new gear in the mail every week, posting images on Facebook, sharing positive comments and clicking the “LIKE” button without hesitation. This is something that brings a smile to the faces of Bro. Hakeem, Sis. Queen, and Sis. Masaniai. However, they know that this clothing line is bigger than just the gear.

“It's very important that we understand that when Allah created a Nation, He created everything in that Nation. Allah put uniqueness in every one of us. That's what The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan is doing with the Dianetics--getting us to further understand and know ourselves. This is an educational clothing line,” said Bro. Hakeem.

“We have everything in the Nation that you can imagine in talent. It shows that Allah did appear in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad; to have such a Nation this talented. We have great people coming out of this Nation!” he said.

“The whole scope of what we are trying to do, especially with that “Alive” shirt, is that we want to the world to know that The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad is physically alive,” said Sis. Queen.

Sis. Masaniai pointed out that “youth outside the Nation may not know who that is on that shirt but it looks hip to them and at the same time they inquire about it. They see the face of The Honorable Elijah Muhammad or The Minister and it’s catching their interest. That's when we convey the message to them as to what The Nation teaches.

No disrespect to other clothing lines, but I’m rocking Nation 19. Don’t be a sellout, go online and buy something! To read the first two parts in this trilogy click: Part 1 and Part 2
