The recent death of Chauncy Bailey, the reporter who was doing investigative work on the Bakery has sparked a series of articles in the SF Chronicle.
When Nation of Islam leader, Elijah Muhammad died in 1975, members in California continued under one of their alternative names - the Black Muslims, led by Yusuf Bey.
