American activist Malcolm X, a leader in the early days of the Nation of Islam, changed his way of thinking after completing the Hajj. He said this of his experience: "There were tens of thousands of pilgrims, from all over the world. They were of all colors, from blue-eyed blonds to black-skinned Africans. But we were all participating in the same ritual displaying a spirit of unity and brotherhood that my experiences in America had led me to believe never could exist between the white and the non-white...America needs to understand Islam, because this is the one religion that erases from its society the race problem."
Famous American Muslims who have performed Hajj include sports greats Muhammad Ali and Hakeem Olajuwon, comedian Dave Chappelle and sportscaster Ahmad Rashad.
