According to the Washington Post, on Sept. 17, 1995, minister Louis Farrakhan, leader of the "Million Man March" in Washington D.C., told a stunned crowd at a Washington Baptist church that the march was inspired by an extraterrestrial vision he had 10 years ago. A UFO, he said, swept him off to a spaceship where the late Elijah Muhammad told him that President Ronald Reagan was plotting a war. Farrakhan was then beamed back to Earth. "I really don't care if you think I'm a nut," he told the church, without elaborating on how his vision was connected to the march.

Regarding Louis Farrakhan and his "UFO abduction" experience: The Washington Post carried a lengthy interview with Minister Farrakhan in its edition of March 1, 1990, beginning on Page One.
Farrakhan's description of his "UFO" experience, (which he said had to do with a foreknowledge of the U.S. military strike against Libya's leader, and a later possible war), is on Page A-3 of that Post edition. He also had related the story to about 10,000 of his followers at a Washington arena in late 1989. His story is prefaced by a brief but fairly complete synopsis, for the Post reporters, of "UFOlogical history." He is well read.
