Nuwaubianism is an umbrella term used to refer to the doctrines and teachings of the followers of Dwight York. The Nuwaubians themselves typically do not use the term. It is not to be found in the works of their teacher Dwight D. York. Instead, they have referred to their teachings by such terms as “Nuwaubu,” “Nuwaupu,” “Wu-Nuwaubu,” “Right Knowledge,” “Sound Right Reasoning,” “Overstanding,” “Factology,” and many other names through the years. The Nuwaubians originated as a Black Muslim group in New York in the 1970s, and have gone through many changes since. Eventually, the group established a headquarters in Putnam County, Georgia in 1993, which they have since abandoned. York is now in prison after having been convicted on money laundering and child molestation charges, but Nuwaubianism endures.
