Abstract
This paper focuses on a the Nation of Islam's prison ministry. The sustained presence of the Nation of Islam's membership can be attributed in part to their ability to consistently draw new recruits from the jails and prisons of the United States. It is suggested that patterns and processes discerned from this study of the prison program will advance the sociological understanding of the movement as a whole.
