“I had no idea that history was being made. I was just tired of giving up.” ~Rosa Parks
Celebrating Black History Month 2018…
During the month of February, CWSC is sponsoring the American Muslim 360 History Challenge in celebration of Black History Month. We’re giving away prizes of Remaking Our World: Calendar! The premier 2018 36-page keepsake shares a history, leadership and a legacy of a community destined to remake the world. The publication was the cornerstone of CWSC’s National Dawah Campaign (see the movie below).
Tune in AM360.org daily and listen for the Challenge Question of the Day and be the first person to call in with the correct answer. Your AM360 Host will get your name and number off air and CWSC will contact you and get your gift to you. If there is no correct answer before the end of the show, then a brand new question will be asked during the next live broadcast day.
Winners can only win once during the month to allow others in the group intellect to share in the Challenge. AM360 Staff and Host Producers and CWSC Board are not eligible to win.
