Nation of Islam leader, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, hasn’t been one for public media appearances in the past decade. However, Min. Farrakhan blessed Power 105’s The Breakfast Club morning crew earlier today (Jun. 5) with his presence, sharing some of the many jewels he’s become known for.

At 82 years of age, Farrakhan is still a fiery and consistent figure of the NOI and has led the organization into the 21st Century with a savvy necessary to reach a younger generation. Given the climate of race relations and politics in the country, Farrakhan’s message for unity among young people of color might be especially resonant.

Not surprisingly, DJ Envy, Angela Yee, and Charlamagne Tha God were on their best behavior in front of the respected leader. The interview didn’t take place in their normal digs, giving the moment a conversational air.

Here are the top nine things we learned from Minister Louis Farrakhan on the following pages. Remember to go all the way to the end to peep the video.
