CWSC’s executive director, Mukhtar Muhammad stated recently, we have to complement the Community’s intelligentsia with a minimum of four components to be in the best position to remake the world and they include a national think tank that publishes working and white papers on the major domestic and international issues of our times; a speakers bureau that can penetrate into the halls of of the “four birds” of influence in American Society, a national broadcasting network, and an office of international relations. Our prayers are being answered. If we believe words make people and people make change, and that we have something to say, then we have to do more to make sure our voices and our work reach the people here in America and abroad. We have to take our rightful seat at the table of national and international dialogue, and Dr. King’s advice will be invaluable in helping us achieve that.”
