|~ Dwight York|
Dwight York (June 26th, 1945 - ) is a black supremacist cult leader who set up the Nuwaubian Nation - which is classed as a hate group in its native America, although having roots in Black Islam it soon changed into a UFO mystery religion that claimed the Black race were superior and that Whites were evil, genetically-altered soldiers of ancient times that became corrupt and that as a result all white people are literally "monsters" rather than people.
York began his ministry in the late 1960s. In 1967 he was preaching to the "Ansaaru Allah" (viz. African Americans) in Brooklyn, New York, during the period of the Black Power movement. He founded numerous orders under various names during the 1970s and 1980s. These were at first based on pseudo-Islamic themes and Judaism (Nubian Islamic Hebrews). Later he developed a theme derived from "Ancient Egypt," mixing ideas taken from black nationalism, cryptozoological and UFO religions, and popular conspiracy theory. He last called his group the United Nuwaubian Nation of Moors, or Nuwabians.
York and the Nuwaubians came under scrutiny in the early 1990s, after they built Tama-Re, an Egyptian-themed "city" for about a hundred of his followers, in rural Putnam County, Georgia. Before York's trial, the community had been joined directly and in the area by hundreds of other followers from out of state, while alienating both black and white local residents. The community was intensively investigated after numerous reports that York had molested numerous children of his followers.
He is currently imprisoned on a 135 year sentence on RICO and child molestation charges, in total he is convict of over a hundred counts of sexually molesting dozens of children, some as young as four years old.
