BLACK HITLER' JAILED TO AWAIT SENTENCE; Gorgeous Array of Sufi Abdul Hamid Avails Nought -- Found Guilty in Pamphlet Sale.

January 16, 1935, Page 7

... arrayed, dusky- skinned man stood before Magistrade Thomas Aurelio yesterday in Harlem Court. His name, he said, was Sufi Abdul Hamid. A year ago he was acquitted in the same court when the police accused him of urging his Negro followers to drive the Jews and Italians out of Harlem.

HARLEM'S 'HITLER' JAILED FOR SPEECH; Court Calls Sufi Abdul Hamid 'Impostor and Faker' Before 150 Negro Followers.
January 20, 1935, Section N, Page 1
Sufi Abdul Hamid, the Negro known to his followers as the "Black Hitler," was denounced as an "imposter and a faker" by Magistrate Thomas Aurelio in Washington Heights Court yesterday and sentenced to the workhouse for ten days on each of two charges, the terms to run concurrently.

Mark Christian Thompson: 'Black Fascisms: African American Literature and Culture Between the Wars,' University of Virginia Press, 2007, p.10:

...violent assaults on Italians in Harlem... The Harlem soapboxer and putative "Black Hitler" Sufi Abdul Hamid and his "Don't Buy Where You Can't Work" boycott campaign were also blamed for fomenting anti-Semitism and the destruction of the 1935 Harlem riots...

Yet Nazi Germany in 1935 had no monopoly on anti-Semitism, nor was black America immune. The Louis Farrakhan of that era was Sufi Abdul Hamid. New York's self-styled "Black Hitler." 

Born plain Eugene Brown in Philadelphia. Sufi as a youth went to sea, where he picked up a smat- tering of exotic languages, and then landed in Chicago where dur- ing the late 1920's he caused a sensation by draping his massive frame in a combination of jackboots, diamond-studded belt, flowing cape, and fez. 

First posing as a Bhuddist mystic, he soon claimed to be an African disciple of Mohammed, divinely ordained to redeem the South Side from Jewish mer- chants. His "Don't Buy Where You Can't Work Campaign'' shook loose few jobs in the depressed economy of the 1930's; but the shakedown payments he extracted from frightened businessmen financed his pur- chase of the private plane that flew him to New York in 1933. 

IDENTIFYING himself from a soapbox on Harlem streetcorners as "the man that Jews fear, and arescared to death of." Sufi ranted against "Zionist colonialists" in Palestine, as well as "them Jews in Washington who rule us all." An admirer of Haj Amin el Husseim, the notorious Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Sufi also courted both the German- American Bund and the Christian Front...

Murray Friedman: 'What Went Wrong?: The Creation & Collapse of the Black-Jewish Alliance,' 2007.p.93 

One of the most radical was a turbaned Muslim from Chicago named Sufi Abdul Hamid. In Chicago Sufi's exotic dress and his claim to have been divinely ordained by Muhammad to redeem the city's south side from Jewish merchants gained him a certain notoriety.

In New York his racist message lost none of its punch. Identifying himself as the black Hitler and a man that the Jews were terrified of, he urged his listeners to run Jews out of Harlem. In a manner Louis Farrakhan would make familiar many years later...

SUFI ABDUL HAMID Before Malcolm , one minor and three major attempts were made to introduce Black Americans to traditional Islam.

He was proud of that title. Ironically.

I hope he bought that plane from a Jewish-owned used plane lot. This one I want the blame for.

So this was the inspiration for the “black fuhrer of Harlem” character from Kurt Vonnegut’s “Mother Night”?
