TUSKEGEE, Ala. (AP) - The leader of the Nation of Islam, Louis Farrakhan, is scheduled to visit Tuskegee University on Friday.

 

An announcement by the university says Farrakhan will address Macon County high school students at the campus at 9:30 a.m. and then speak to others at 6 p.m. He was invited by the Tuskegee University Muslim Student Association and the Black Belt Deliberative Dialogue. The university said Farrakhan's topics will include the need for historically black colleges and universities.

 

Farrakhan's visit is part of his ongoing series of speeches at historically black universities. He spoke last April at Alabama A&M University in Huntsville.
