Malachi York Foundation Seeks Liberia’s Support to Free Their Founder

Dr. York addresses a congregation before his prison sentence in 2002

The Malachi York Foundation has appealed to the Liberian government to reengage the U.S. Judicial system in the Middle District of Georgia to release its founder and chief executive officer, Dr. Malachi Z. York.

Saqar Ahhah and Den Tut Rayay, both from the Foundation based in Georgia, are in Liberia seeking government’s intervention to release Dr. York from prison in the U.S. and subsequently have him repatriated to Liberia, because he is a Liberian by naturalization and has served as Liberia’s Consul General in Georgia, United States.

Dr. York, now 72, was arrested in 2002 and sentenced to 135 years by a court in Georgia on allegations of racketeering, money laundering and transporting minors in interstate commerce for purposes of engaging in unlawful sexual activity.

York came to Liberia in the late 1990s and took on Liberian citizenship by naturalization and was appointed as a Consul General and diplomat by former President Charles Taylor.

The Foundation is, therefore, worried that Dr. York might perish behind bars if the Liberian government does not intervene to free him before it gets too late.

Charles A. Minor, former Liberian Ambassador to the U.S., recently told the Daily Observer that “as far as diplomacy is concerned, there is still a need for the Liberian government to revisit the York case.”

Minor wished he had sufficient information and the necessary backing from the backdrop of truth surrounding the case, while he was serving as a diplomat to help further pursue the York case.

“In keeping with the embassy’s policy of consulting the Liberian Foreign Ministry, we asked for any information on Dr. York as it was indicated that he had been serving as Honorary Consul of Liberia. Our action came following Dr. York’s family’s, including his wife’s, visit to our Washington office in 2005, and 2006, during which they requested assistance from the embassy to get Dr. York released from prison somewhere in the United States,” Amb. Minor said in his note.

“Information received from Liberia indicated that Dr. York, a Consul of Liberia based in Georgia, was also a naturalized Liberian citizen. We later received from the Ministry an official request, originating from the Ministry’s Legal Consul in person of (then) Jenkins Scott, informing the embassy that he and a lawyer for Dr. York would be coming to the United States and that the embassy should cooperate and assist, not only to release him, but repatriate him to Liberia,” Amb. Minor said.

He added, however, that the team which should have been headed by Cllr. Jenkins Scott (now deceased) to the U.S. never showed up and that derailed efforts to engage the State Department on York’s case.

However, he noted that he took few officials from the Liberian diplomatic mission in the U.S. to the State Department and made inquiries into Dr. York’s case; but the response he received complicated attempts to go on with a request to assist his release.

At some point, Cllr. Jerome George Korkoya, current Chairman of Liberia’s National Elections Commission (NEC), also tried to intervene in Dr. York’s behalf, but his effort did not yield any fruitful result up to date.

“I wrote a letter to the U.S. Embassy here in Liberia and cited all the relevant information I have gathered on the case, while making request on behalf of my client to the Liberian government to revisit the case,” Korkoya said.

Ahhah and Rayay are convinced that Dr. York has met the necessary measures by U.S. law and it is time for international protocols and conventions to appeal to the U.S. government to release him.

It may be recalled that a decision by the Montserrado County 6th Circuit Judicial Court on July 21, 2004, established that Dr. Malachi York was a diplomat that represented Liberia in the U.S.

The mandate, which established that the order handed down by former 6th Judicial Circuit Court Judge D. Yusuff Kaba (Now serving as a judge in ECOWAS), states: “As regards the issue of diplomatic immunity, the record in this case established the fact that Petitioner, Dr. Malachi Z. York, was duly appointed by the Government of Liberia as a Consular on December 15, 1999.”

Records in the possession of the Daily Observer show that former President Charles Taylor, in his letter of appointment to Dr. York, said, “I am pleased to appoint you hereby as Consul General of the Republic of Liberia to Atlanta, Georgia, United States of America.”


  1. Dear All, I think you are a paid agent to speak for this man. Someone who has been accused of molesting little girls and tried in court and sentenced, wants Liberia to plead for him; I think that is wrong. Let him serve his time in jail to serve as a deterrent.


    • The comment you’re giving has no clue nfirmation to back it. There’s no proof of any molested little girls or children. Those are things said to keep people against him because of the many facts he’s put in 1000’s of books over the many years. It’s always best to do research before commenting. There is no proof on any of the charges brought against him.

        • International Law supersedes the laws of America… Dr. York is LIberian.. From my research.. that site is owned and ran by an agent for the Federal Government.. some guy that used to live in Washington D.C.

          You must think because we are African we are stupid.. sorry oooo

        • No he’s not none of those people who claimed to be molested were even children at the time of Trial.. Ive done the research and I am Liberian, and my father met Dr. York when he came here in 1996, and I’ve seen all the work he’s done for our nation and will continue to do.. the FACTS remain.. NO JURISDICTION.. Dr. York is coming out of that $hitHole… LOL…

    • You didn’t witness anything. Don’t condemn someone based off of media reports. That’s a serious character law.Check your self lady.

      • You didn’t witness anything. Don’t condemn someone based off of media reports. That’s a serious character flaw.Check your self lady.

          • You either work for the Federal government in the United States of for the United States Embassy in Liberia… You are pushing propoganda.. see we here in Africa.. no the games … you can not pull the wool over our eyes…

            WHAT ABOUT PHOTOS?
            WHAT ABOUT VIDEO?


        • Those witnesses lied under oath… they did Affidavits to that effect already.. they are LIARS at the bare minimum…. you want us to believe that crock? ooooo

          you dont know Liberia… We are the Liberators and will Liberate Dr. York for his works for his country.. LIBERIA!!




  2. Dr Malachi York should be repatriated. Research his works through the years to uplift unify and inspire people. His case was fabricated to remove an extremely influential African man in America. There are thousands who see the lies and trickery and support Dr York worldwide. When repatriated to Liberia i will plan to travel to Liberia.

    • There is no proof of him being a pediphile. Please state only the facts, not he say she say or things that can’t be confirmed.

        • Hahaha… I’ve sat and watch this for soooo long ooo… You are just like those Americans that came to Liberia in the 1800’s with the same thinking of the colonialists…. We know your Judges hate us Africans… we can not be fooled… We have a judgement here that says that Dr. York MUST BE REPATRIATED.. that DR. YORK is DIPLOMATIC PERSONNEL protected under the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations… 6th Circuit Judicial Court for the Republic of Liberia.. Judge Yussif Kaba.. FROM OUR COURTS!!

  3. All the people who have accused Dr. Malachi Kobina Z. York of being a pedophile… Your statements of judgement are premature and cloaked in fear of analytical minds of citizens of mental bondage. Once the courts say something everyone agrees without research out of fear… Afraid to be responsible and fight for someone who has a different perspective on mental and physical development that can bring about social change. Fact is most or all that disagree to Malachi Z. York’s release have. Little or no true knowledge of his trial…..therefore they are ignorant of this man’s humanitarian value and their statements are ignorant

  4. Byron Payne is absolutely correct. all the negative accusers of Dr. York where are the facts ? Do we know what facts are?

    All the people who have accused Dr. Malachi Kobina Z. York of being a pedophile… Your statements of judgement are premature and cloaked in fear of analytical minds of citizens of mental bondage. Once the courts say something everyone agrees without research out of fear… Afraid to be responsible and fight for someone who has a different perspective on mental and physical development that can bring about social change. Fact is most or all that disagree to Malachi Z. York’s release have. Little or no true knowledge of his trial…..therefore they are ignorant of this man’s humanitarian value and their statements are ignorant

  5. This has case has gone far too long and it’s now time for Dr Malachi York to be freed and repatriated back to Liberia period.

  6. This article is powerful! I can’t wait for our President Dr York to be released out of that place. He is the key we all need amongst us. Great article!

  7. Dr Malachi York, has done so much for his people and continues to do so, by his teachings and his continuous guidence on how to be and do better for self and love each other as a world community, having a Malachi York Foundation in Liberia, that helps the community, even while being imprisoned under the most cruel and harshest of circumstances, he still gives hisome all! He needs to be released and repatriated to Liberia, no more waiting, THE TIME IS NOW!

  8. This is nothing new when it comes to a Black man raising the consciousness of the people. The government will always seek prevent the rise of the black “messiah type” as J Edgar Hoover stated in Cointelpro mission statement. They’ve done the same with Elijah Muhammad, Marcus Garvey, Dr. King, Patrice Lumumba, and now Dr. York. We have to stop falling for anything they tell us on the media. Their isn’t any proof of these allegations, therefore he should be freed and repatriated immediately! Free Dr. York!

    • If you think he’s a “messiah type” you’ve really been brainwashed. If you really study the facts you’ll see he’s much more of a “Satan type.”

  9. It’s time for him to be free, we see criminals killing people and get away with a few years in prison. While Malachi Z York have been sent to 135years in jail. I support this great teacher. His work was the truth and nothing but the truth

  10. Does anyone care about the specific crime he’s alleged to have committed and for which he’s incarcerated? His alleged good works do not negate his his crime. If he’s innocent, there are layers of accountability in United States courts to appeal for fair hearing. None of the comments above addresses that; only emotional and loyal statements, which have no bearing on the evidence presented in court that convicted him, hence the sentence he’s serving. Note, he was convicted by a jury of his peers after hearing narrowed down list of ~200 alleged crimes from over ~1000 possible criminal acts.

  11. “Dr. York, now 72, was arrested in 2002 and sentenced to 135 years by a court in Georgia on allegations of racketeering, money laundering and transporting minors in interstate commerce for purposes of engaging in unlawful sexual activity.” Can these allegations be disproven? In order for the Liberian government to engage the U.S. Judicial system, the government of Liberia needs facts to disprove that these crimes were not committed.

    Despite Dr. York naturalization as a Liberian, the United States of America still considered him an American (Dual Citizenship is recognized in the USA). The U.S. does not repatriate its citizen to another country. Therefore, Dr. York might have been tried as an American citizen who has committed a crime in the USA.

    Was Dr. York appointment by then President Charles G. Taylor as Liberia’s Consul General recognized and accepted by the U.S. Government? We need to know. If not, Liberia can not appeal for his release on grounds of diplomatic immunity.

    All in all, I think 135 years in prison is a life sentence and let’s, therefore, appeal for commuting the sentence for time served. The man is 72 years old.

    Until the facts are provided, let us not be quick to judge. Good people can sometimes turn out to be bad guys and bad people can sometimes turn out to be good guys.

  12. Liberia must study this case carefully before bringing this man back to our country. He claimed to be many things including a Sudanese, Arab, etc etc etc. His organization is said to be a cult. Look Liberian Observer, please plead with the Liberian Govt to build a new maximum security prison. many criminals will be amongst those Pres. Trump will be deporting. if this York group ever land on that soil, the country will be in a upheaval given the up tick in crime already

  13. Dwight D. York[1] (born June 26, 1945[2][3]), also known as Malachi Z. York, Issa Al Haadi Al Mahdi, Dr. York, et alii, is an American musician, writer, known as the founding leader of various religious/political groups, including most notably the cult Nuwaubian movement.[4] He is a convicted child molester.

    He and his group were based in Brooklyn, New York. Around 1990 the community relocated to rural Putnam County, Georgia, where they built a large complex. York was convicted in 2004 of child molestation and violations of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act. He is serving a 135-year sentence.

    York began his ministry in the late 1960s. In 1967 he was preaching to the “Ansaaru Allah” (viz. African Americans) in Brooklyn, New York, during the period of the Black Power movement. He founded numerous orders under various names during the 1970s and 1980s. These were at first based on pseudo-Islamic themes and Judaism (Nubian Islamic Hebrews). Later he developed a theme derived from “Ancient Egypt,” mixing ideas taken from black nationalism, cryptozoological and UFO religions, and popular conspiracy theory. He last called his group the United Nuwaubian Nation of Moors, or Nuwabians.

    York and the Nuwaubians came under scrutiny in the early 1990s, after they built Tama-Re, an Egyptian-themed “city” for about a hundred of his followers, in rural Putnam County, Georgia. Before York’s trial, the community had been joined directly and in the area by hundreds of other followers from out of state, while alienating both black and white local residents. The community was intensively investigated after numerous reports that York had molested numerous children of his followers.

    York was arrested in May 2002. In 2004 he was convicted on federal charges of transporting minors across state lines for the purposes of sexual molestation, as well as racketeering and financial reporting violations. York’s case was reported as the largest prosecution for child molestation ever directed at a single person in the history of the United States, both in terms of number of victims and number of incidents.

    Early life
    York incorporates a “™” trade-mark suffix into his signature on a Liberian Consulate document.

    According to a birth certificate issued in the United States, Dwight D. York was born in Boston, Massachusetts.[5] Other sources give his birthplace as New Jersey,[6] New York,[3] Baltimore,[7] or Takoradi, Ghana.[8][citation needed]

    York says that he was raised in Massachusetts, and at the age of seven went to Aswan, Egypt to learn about Islam. “My grandfather, As Sayyid Abdur Rahman Al Mahdi, the Imaam of the Ansaars in the Sudan until 1959 AD, upon looking into my eyes foretold that I was the one who would possess ‘the light.'”[9] He says he returned to the United States in 1957 at age 12 and continued to study Islam. As an adolescent, he moved with his family to Teaneck, New Jersey.

    In the late 1960s York, calling himself “Imaam Isa”, combined elements of the Moorish Science Temple of America, the Nation of Islam, the Nation of Gods and Earths and Freemasonry, and founded a quasi-Muslim black nationalist movement and community. He called it “Ansaar Pure Sufi,” or the “Ansaaru Allah Community,” c. 1970.[10] He instructed members to wear black and green dashikis.[3]

    He later changed his name to “Imaam Isa Abdullah,” and renamed his “Ansaar Pure Sufi” ministry to the “Nubians” in Brooklyn in 1967.[3] The group was considered to be part of the Black Hebrews phenomenon, under the name “Nubian Islaamic Hebrews”. Unlike other groups, they were not Judeo-Christian but Judeo-Islamic.[11] and “Nubian Hebrew Mission” as of 1969[12] This was also the period of Black Power among some African Americans.
    Ansaaru Allah Community (1970)

    York later traveled to Africa, to Sudan and Egypt in particular. He met and persuaded members of Mohamed Ahmed Al-Mahdi’s family to finance him to set up a cell of their organization in the United States. This was to be a “west” or “American” political wing of Sudan’s Ansar movement under Sadiq al-Mahdi (also see Umma Party). He began to develop the claim of his “Sudanese” roots in order to authenticate his American branch of the sect.[3]

    After York returned from a pilgrimage to (Egypt and Sudan), he invited Sadiq Al-Mahdi to the US. In 1970 his group changed its name to the “Ansaaru Allah Community in the West.”[13] A 1993 FBI report described this group as a “front for a wide range of criminal activity, including arson, welfare fraud and extortion.”[14]

    The group wrote:

    The women of the Ansaaru Allah Community focus on memorizing history as their Imam sees it, learning Arabic (many of them are quite fluent), incorporating Sudanese etiquette into their mannerisms and memorizing the Qur’an. They participate in the compilation of the various texts produced by the community and also work in the recording studio owned by the community. Other than this work, the women’s main source of income comes from US government public assistance and monies earned by the men in various enterprises such as food shops, jewelry and merchandise stores, and street vending.[13]

    Brooklyn (1980–1993)

    The New York Press reported on York:

    He was based in Coney Island for a time, and operated a bookstore and a printing press on Flatbush Ave. in the 70s. In the 80s he was based in Brooklyn, on Bushwick Ave. York’s students are best remembered by New Yorkers as practitioners of orthodox Islam – members of certain New York Five Percent Nation, Nation of Islam and Arab Islamic mosques still regard the Nuwaubians as a rival faction – but at different times they followed the paths of Christianity and Judaism. Operations relocated to Liberty, near the Catskills, around 1991, then to Georgia in 1993.[15]

    The community in Brooklyn, reported as identifying as the “Holy Tabernacle of the Most High” and also as the “Children of Abraham,” was said to be led by Rabboni Y’shua Bar El Haady. They practiced a mixture of Judaism and Islam. They were reported as numbering about 300 persons and in 1994 the group reportedly still owned nine apartment buildings, of which five were in tax arrears. Local politicians were concerned that the abandoned buildings would become centers of uses that would damage the neighborhood. Anecdotal reports were that some of the group went to Monroe County, New York, and others to Georgia.[16]
    Musical productions

    In the early 1980s, York had performed as vocalist with his own groups, known as Jackie and the Starlights, the Students, and Passion.

    He launched his own record label, named Passion Productions, recording as the solo artist “Dr. York.” His debut release was the single “Only a Dream” (later included in the album New York, Hot Melt Records UK, 1985). “Dr. York” and Passion Productions were advertised in the May 4, 1985 issue of Billboard magazine.[17]

    Background vocals were by Ted Mills of the group Blue Magic.[18] York said he performed popular music in order to “reach a mass majority of my people through my music.”[19]
    Ministry and fraternal orders

    York’s groups had a variety of names and functions: quasi-religious, fraternal, and tribal. They were called “Holy Tabernacle Ministries”, “Egiptian [sic] Church of Karast,” “Holy Seed Baptist Synagogue”, “Ancient Mystic Order of Melchizedek”, “Ancient Egiptian [sic] Order”, “All Eyez on Egypt”, “United Nuwaubian Nation of Moors”, “Yamassee Native American Tribe”, “Washitaw Tribe”, and “Lodge 19 of the Ancient and Mystic Order of Malachizodok.”[20] While drawing from various religious and historical themes, Malachi York continued to focus on Nubia. He promoted a design featuring an ankh in the middle of a six-pointed star of Judaism and Islamic crescent, a symbol used by the Ansarullah Community. The ankh is associated with pre-Islamic Sudan, Nubia.

    Dwight York changed his name legally in 1990 to “Issa al Haadi al Mahdi” when he was still living in Brooklyn.[21] He changed it again in 1993 to “Malachi York,”[5] but also adopted a number of titles and pseudonyms, including “The Supreme Grand Master Dr. Malachi Z. York,” “Nayya Malachizodoq-El,” and “Chief Black Eagle.”

    By 1985 York had added miracle-performance to his repertoire. He claimed to materialize sacred, healing ash in front of his followers, much in the fashion of Sathya Sai Baba.[22]

    In 1988 York was convicted of obtaining a passport with a false birth certificate.[23]
    Move to Georgia and construction of Tama-Re (1993–2002)

    York left Brooklyn with an estimated 300 followers about 1990. Some settled in upstate New York. He later moved with numerous followers to Georgia. Others joined them from such cities as Baltimore, Philadelphia, Hartford, New York and Washington, D.C.[4] According to former follower Robert J. Rohan, who later wrote a book about the movement, York moved in order to avoid criminal investigations and other charges in New York.[24]

    Perhaps to avoid scrutiny from the international Muslim community, the Nation of Islam, the Nation of Gods and Earths, legal troubles, and the negative history of his group during their New York period, he changed his own name several times, as well as the group’s name, and masked different parts of their doctrine.[14] In Georgia, they changed their name to the “United Nuwaubian Nation of Moors.”[10]

    At York’s direction, the community purchased land and built Tama-Re, an Egyptian-themed complex built on 476 acres (1.93 km2) of land near Eatonton, Georgia. It was built over a period of years and completed in 1993.

    Tensions with county authorities increased in 1998, when the county sought an injunction against construction and uses that violated zoning. At the same time, the Nuwaubian community increased its leafletting of Eatonton and surrounding areas, charging white officials with racial discrimination and striving to increase opposition to them. Threats mounted and an eviscerated dog carcass was left at the home of the county attorney.[4]

    Within Putnam County, the Nuwaubians lost black support, in part by trying to take over the NAACP chapter. But outside, they appealed to activists, claiming to be persecuted in the county. During this period, the group maintained Holy Tabernacle stores “in more than a dozen cities in the U.S., the United Kingdom and Trinidad.”[4] And York purchased a $557,000 mansion in Athens, Georgia, about 60 miles away, the base of the University of Georgia.[4]

    In July 1999, Time magazine reported on the “40-ft. pyramids, obelisks, gods, goddesses and a giant sphinx,” built by York’s followers in rural Georgia in an article titled “Space Invaders”.[25]

    In 2005 federal government officials acquired the property of Tama-Re through asset forfeiture after York was convicted and sentenced to prison for 135 years. He owed money for violating financial laws. After the property was sold, new owners demolished the buildings and monuments.
    Arrest and conviction of child molestation (2002-present)

    Beginning in Brooklyn, York had established strict sexual practices within the community, reserving for himself sexual access to many women and girls, including wives and children of followers.

    Theodore Gabriel wrote about these practices:

    [W]hile extolling the virtues and importance of family life and the conjugal relationship, he [York] denies such relationships to his followers except at strictly controlled intervals. He urges his female followers to pattern themselves on the Islamic paradigms of the wife and the mother, apparently desiring the creation of stable family units. But in reality the husbands and wives are segregated in dormitories, separated also from their children. York permits spouses to cohabit only once every three months. They are permitted to meet in the “Green Room” by prior appointment only.[26]

    Anonymous letters were sent to Putnam County officials alleging child molestation at the Nuwaubian community. The FBI, which had started investigating the group in 1993, assigned a major task force to it. In 2002 York was arrested and charged with more than 100 counts of sexually molesting dozens of children, some as young as four years old. According to Bill Osinski, who wrote a 2007 book about York and the case:

    When he [York] was finally indicted, state prosecutors literally had to cut back the number of counts listed — from well beyond a thousand to slightly more than 200 — because they feared a jury simply wouldn’t believe the magnitude of York’s evil.… [It] is believed to be the nation’s largest child molestation prosecution ever directed at a single person, in terms of number of victims and number of alleged criminal acts.[27]

    In early 2003 York’s lawyer had him evaluated by a forensic psychologist, who diagnosed a DSM-IV

    impression consisting of Axis I – Clinical Syndrome of Delusional (Paranoid) Disorder, Generalized anxiety disorder, Adjustment disorder with depressed mood, and Axis II – personality disorders; histrionic personality traits, self-defeating personality traits, and schizotypal personality features.[28]

    In 2003, York entered into a plea bargain that was later dismissed by the judge. He was convicted by a jury on January 23, 2004. The judge rejected his plea to be returned for trial to his own “tribe,” after York claimed status as an indigenous person:

    Your Honor, with all due respects to your government, your nation, and your court, we the indigenous people of this land have our own rights, accepted sovereign, our own governments. We are a sovereign people, Yamassee, Native American Creeks, Seminole, Washitaw Mound Builders. And all I’m asking is that the Court recognize that I am an indigenous person. Your court does not have jurisdiction over me. I should be transferred to the Moors Cherokee Council Court in which I will get a trial by juries of my peers. I cannot get a fair trial, Your Honor, if I’m being tried by the settlers or the confederates. I have to be tried by Native Americans as a Native American. That’s my inalienable rights, and it’s on record.[29]

    He asserted to the court that he was a “secured party,” and answered questions in court with the response: “I accept that for value.” This may have been a heterodox legal strategy based on patriot mythology.[30][clarification needed]

    Early in 2004, York was convicted in federal court by a jury of multiple RICO, child molestation, and financial reporting charges. He was sentenced to 135 years in prison.[31]

    His case was appealed to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals, but that court upheld the convictions on October 27, 2005.[32] A U.S. Supreme Court appeal was denied in June 2006.[33]

    York’s followers assert a number of defenses, including that their leader Malachi Z. York, who was charged and convicted, is not the same person as the Dwight D. York who is listed in court documents as the defendant. (One of York’s sons is named Dwight, and sometimes the claim is made that it is York’s son and not York who is or should be the real defendant). Other say that York was “set up” by his son Jacob in coordination with al Qaeda-linked American mosques jealous of York’s influence among black Muslims.[citation needed]

    York believes that his betrayal, arrest, trial and imprisonment (and eventual release) were foretold in chapter 10 of Zecharia Sitchin’s The Wars of the Gods and the Men, with York being represented by Mar-duq in that story.[34]

    As of 2014 Dwight York is serving his sentence at the United States Penitentiary Administrative Maximum Facility (ADX) in Florence, Colorado as Inmate # 17911-054. His projected release date is April 7, 2122, effectively a life sentence.[35]

    York’s followers have said that since 1999 York has been a Consul General of Monrovia, Liberia, under appointment from then-President Charles Taylor. They argue he should be given diplomatic immunity from prosecution and extradited as a persona non-grata to Liberia.[36] Officials have not accepted this claim.
    Main article: Nuwaubianism

    York has taught an ever-changing and multifaceted doctrine over the years, with influences and borrowings from many sources. It has included a baroque cosmology, unconventional theories about race and human origins, cryptozoological and extraterrestrial speculations, black nationalism, conspiracy theory, and religious practices invented or borrowed from many existing religions.

    York has had a variety of stories about his ancestry and birth, including that he was born in Omdurman, Sudan. This has not been documented. His parents of record are Mary C. York (née Williams), now also known as Faatimah Maryam, and her husband David Piper York.[4] York has claimed that his biological father was Al Haadi Abdur Rahman Al Mahdi, whom his mother ostensibly met while studying as a student in the Sudan.[37] This is not supported by any documentary sources.

    York claims that the name he was given at birth was “Isa Al Haadi Al Mahdi” and that he was not given the name “York” (without a first name) until a month later when he and his mother returned to Boston.[38] David and Mary York had four other children together: David, Dale, Debra and Dennis.[37] York has claimed, without documentation being found, that his father was descended from “Ben” York, an enslaved African American who took part in the Lewis and Clark Expedition (1804-1806).[37]

    He claims a paternal Sudanese grandfather, As Sayyid Abdur Rahman Al Mahdi, making York a descendant of the Muslim leader Muhammad Ahmad.[39] There is no documentation to support this.

    On his mother’s side, York described his maternal grandfather, Clarence Daniel “Bobby” Williams, as “an Egyptian Moor named Salah Hailak Al Ghala, a merchant seaman from a little village called Beluwla, in Nubia of Ancient Egypt.”[40] Another genealogical tree shows Bobby Williams’ father as unknown and his mother as “Madam Decontee” of the Bassa tribe of Liberia.[37] These claims have not been documented….


  15. M mom joined in 1973. I was born into the community in 1975, Dwight is my father. Mom and I left in 1988. I can say from experience up until 1988, what Biko writes is FACT. I was there. He married a girl I grew up with there when I was 15, which means she was also, at most, 15. That is the very definition of paedophile. Even if your argument is religious freedom, ok but what about his other crimes? My mom has told me stories from before I was born. Smh. We were abused also.

  16. One thing I can say is that the media tricks the audience in believing that the innocent is guilty and the guilty is innocent. cruel intentions from the people he trusted including his son sad how his flesh and blood his son would do that to his only father.
    I saw the documentry on the I.D network and it didn’t make sense to me there were missing piece to the story. All I’m saying is I think they were all paid off by the F.B.I and sence they didn’t have a story on Dr. Malachi Z. York they clearly made up a story about him molesting children. Only way to stop a black man of power is to throw dirt on Dr York name to the world for the world to see how negative of a person Dr. York so call is.
    Just like they said Michael Jackson molested little boys and that story was B.S.
    all of the made up stories on black powerful leaders the governor tries to black male those with power, but show the tapes on all the life’s Dr Malachi saved shit I’m one of those individuals.

    Wow but R Kelly get’s to walk around here as a free man after trapping little girls from there families and the media showed his entire story from when he was a child. We saw the cause and effect who he was raped by and why he carries on the same traits as an adult and mfs still support his music.

    All of the popes, priests the government and secert society are the biggest perverts they all have stories on child pornagraphy but they cover up they’re traces by framing pointing the finger at other people for their behavior or sweeping the story under the rug.
