SPRINGFIELD — Illinois senators Thursday rejected the reappointment of a co-founder of a group dedicated to a former Nation of Islam leader to the state’s Human Rights Commission.
Elijah Muhammad was a leader of black Muslims, and the coalition runs a website about his beliefs and involvement with the Nation of Islam. Some of his beliefs included prohibiting interracial marriage, supporting separate education for men and women, and worship of Allah.
