         The Black African Holocaust Council

On April 19, 1994, over 2,000 individuals converged on the
campus of Howard University to attend a night-long even
dedicated to "Documenting the Black Holocaust." The crowd
cheered wildly as one by one, champions of demagoguery like
Steve Cokely, Professor Leonard Jeffries, Professor Tony
Martin, and Khalid Abdul Muhammad, took the stage. Each of them
implicated Jews and Jewish organizations in an assortment of
alledged plots to destroy the black community, and repeatedly
brought the audience to its feet with anti-white remarks.
Equally disturbing was the insistence by all of these men that
the Nazi murder of six million Jews was trivial in comparison
to the suffering imposed by whites on the African people.

While this celebration of hatred was the subject of media
attention in the days that followed, many of the individuals
who took to the podium that night have faded from the
headlines. But, out of the spotlight, their battle cries have
not weakened. In fact, they have recently been provided with
an additional forum for their rhetoric by a group known as the
Black African Holocaust Council. (Anti-Defamation League, 3)
