Black supremacy or black supremacism is a racial supremacist belief which maintains that black people are superior to people of other races. Early sources for these beliefs include Royal Parchment Scroll of Black Supremacy (1920s), Holy Piby (1920s), and The Promised Key (1935), which reworks material from the earlier two sources. The Nation of Islam, founded 1930, is one organization among several that promote such beliefs. In the 1960s, Martin Luther King said that black supremacy was as dangerous as white supremacy.
