    Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan

    (AP) — Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan has sought medical care in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

    Farrakhan representative Akbar Muhammed says Farrakhan went to a hospital on Tuesday with a “low-grade fever.” He says Farrakhan has left the St. Thomas hospital and is describing his condition as “fine.”

    Farrakhan, 79, had been scheduled to give a speech on St. Croix but it was canceled. He is expected to visit a St. Croix prison on Wednesday.

    Farrakhan is on a Caribbean tour to islands including Barbados, Dominica, and the Bahamas.

    He has had a number of health problems over the years, including prostate cancer surgery in 2000 and a five-week hospital stay in 2007.

    The Chicago-based Nation of Islam has espoused black nationalism and self-reliance since it was founded in the 1930s.
