Nation of Islam minister speaks in The Bronx

THE BRONX - Dozens of Bronx residents turned out over the weekend for a speech by Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan.

Farrakhan spoke at East 165th Street and Trinity Avenue Sunday about how local residents can contribute to lowering the crime rate in the borough. He referred back to the fatal shooting of 4-year-old Lloyd Morgan back in July.

The minister also drew the attention of many politicians, including state Assemblyman Eric Stevenson (D-The Bronx).
