Backdrop is Harlem New York.  A child pushes a grocery trolley in the background. Beaten down black men line up for food in a soup kitchen.  Very little dignity can be felt in the neighborhood. Suddenly, from nowhere, a dignified news seller, well dressed in suit and tie and a nice coat, appears amid the depravity to announce a slither of hope for his people.  It is good news to be told to the multitude, in an almost “return of Christ-like fashion”. He brandishes the newspaper he is selling to announce the arrival of a new savior, The Prophet Elijah Muhammad.
