Censorship is as censorship does. Multi-billion dollar video streaming company Netflix will not carry a documentary film, “My Life’s Journey Through Music,” highlighting controversial Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan’s musical virtuosity.

The film is produced by Minister’s Music Inc., and “features many award winning musical icons and legends from several different genres,” according to the company’s promotional site for the project available here.

Mainstream coverage of the present Netflix ban is devoid of reference to Farrakhan’s musicianship. The promo below indicates a polished production and numerous high-profile black musicians featured alongside Farrakhan throughout the film.

Needless to say Farrakhan is deemed controversial by major media and holds unconventional views on a variety of topics, including his condemnation of homosexuality and the “Satanic Jew,” the latter of which caused Twitter to temporarily censor him. Netflix announced the film would be available in August but has now pulled it, citing “an internal miscommunication.”

According to TheWrap,

Netflix will not stream a documentary about Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, the company said in a statement on Tuesday.

The documentary, titled “My Life’s Journey Through Music,” was first reported to be on the list of films coming to the streaming service in August, with Farrakhan tweeting about the documentary’s addition to the service. But Netflix says this will not be the case, blaming an error for the film being included on the list.

“Due to an internal miscommunication, it appeared to be scheduled for release on Netflix, but it is not,” said a company spokesperson. “We apologize for any confusion this has caused.”

  1. From a MHB reader:

    If Louis, who was an adequate fiddler and may have had a Jewish father, had been a genius like the Jewish Joshua Bell – as we heard last night at Mostly Mozart where the audience went wild, he may not have needed to make a switch to being a hot headed holy man who loves publicity. LOL.

    “The summer after Louis’ conversion, Elijah Muhammad stated that all musicians in the NOI had to choose between music and the Nation of Islam.[10] Louis X did so only after performing one final event at the Nevele,[citation needed] a Jewish resort in the Catskills.”

    Bell playing Bruch as we heard last night.


  2. I like Minister LOUIS FARRAKHAN. He is a very intelligent man, citizen and leader. I enjoy listening to him speak. He is clear and honest and forthright and incisive and has an ability to convey complicated concepts in a down to earth and humble way. I did not know he was a violinist. I listened to one of the videos still up when he played at about age 61. He was good. He is a very talented man whom I admire from New York. He has guts and chutzpah and high intelligence. He would have been a good scientist. I enjoy listening to him more than the late Dr. Martin Luther King. I wish he were younger. Blacks have a real dearth of leadership today. Many were murdered like MLK and Malcolm X, also a very intellgent Black murdered before his time. America is a shameful disgrace. Black slave labor built New York. The slave market was about a block from the NY Stock Exchange. I also took violin and piano lessons as a kid but my first love was a 1932 Ford Convertible with Rumble Seat. That is what I stayed up to 2;00 O’clock am in the morning working on, not practicing for the junior high school orchestra. The Civil War was another war all based on lies. Dishonest Abe had zero authority to kill over 1 million and destroy billions of dollars of property to “hold the Union together”. Not one word in the Constitution authorized these crimes by Dishonest Ave and his two henchmen, Drunk Grant and Psychopath Sherman. If you believe slavery was ended by the Civil War, watch “Harvest of Shame” with Edward R. Murrow, CBS Reports, 1960 on Thanksgiving Day before journalists stopped reporting the truth. Nothing has changed today either. Thank you Minister LOUIS FARRAKHAN for your many good and lasting contributions to America. It is an obscenity the video about his life was censored.
    We learned nothing from history. We are being returned to the dark ages of terror and ignorance again.
