Also see . . . Muhammad’s Mosque of Islam #12. Muhammad’s Mosque of Islam #12 located at 4218-20 Lancaster Avenue, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19104, from l957 to l963, was the epicenter of debate and discussion about the future of African Americans in the nation. Mosque #12 was unique in the nation because no other mosque of the Nation of Islam could claim the oversight and constant teaching of two of the eminent orators and interpreters of the philosophy of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. Both Minister Malcolm X and Imam Wallace Muhammad served Mosque #12 and both of them went on to become prominent national leaders in the African American community.
