Description

East Bay Express's two-part series investigates Yusuf Bey's network of Black Muslim entrepreneurs and social workers and uncovers "chilling details of their alleged violence, brutality and fraud, as well as the remarkable lengths that powerful civic leaders have gone to in order to secure light sentences for them and prop up their businesses." For decades, the Yusuf Bey group has "enjoyed populist respect and admiration, the friendship of politicians and religious figures, and hundreds of thousands of dollars in city subsidies, despite persistent rumors of their propensity for violence."
