The Words, Acts and Deeds of H. Khalif Khalifah by H. Khalif Khalifah
With pen in hand, and heart on fire with love for his people, H. Khalif Khalifah heeds the carion...much as the mesmerizing voice of El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz (Malcolm X) did in the sixties.

It is not ofter, even here in 1993, that some our notable journalist don't 'wimp out' on writing about such controvertial issues which Khalifah brings to surface in articles such as: "Who will be the First Black to Renounce Nelson Mandela"' 'African People Reassessing Worth of Big City Mayors,' 'Eye Witness Account of the Escape of Assata Shakur.' 'Is the Usefulness of Jesse Jackson Waning?' 'BLA Member Mutulu Shakur Sentenced,' "Muslims Have Only Muslims to Blame: There Should Have Been a Holiday For Elijah Muhammad Long Ago'...and many, many more...
