Dr. Khalil Gibran Muhammad on the Friday CWSC On-Air Roundtable!
Welcome to the Friday CWSC On-Air Roundtable!
Imam W. Deen Mohammed (RA) ascended the podium at the original Nation of Islam’s February 26, 1975 Saviors Day Annual Convention to begin a historic evolution…Now 40 years later we ask how far have we come and what remains to be done in the continuing evolution of a people.
At 9am EST, the Roundtable welcomes Dharr S. Dihaan, director for CWSC Human Resources Development on establishing CWSC as a “Learning Organization,” committed to community service. Brother Dharr, a former executive director responsible for community relations and grantwriting services, introduces the vision for learning labs, professional development and more. Then Dr. Khalil Gibran Muhammad joins AM360’s Roundtable host Mark Shahid and AM360 Executive Producer William Kareem at 9:30 am for a discussion on the evolution of the Community, plus Crime and Race in America: Issues and Answers with Dr. Khalil Gibran Muhammad, a great-grandson of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, director of the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, and author of The Condemnation of Blackness: Race, Crime, and the Making of Modern Urban America.

And now a short story…[An Adaptation]
One warm summer afternoon, a group of ﬁve friends gathered around a ﬁre on the banks of a small river in the woods. They had just made prayer and were now sprawled on the grass or sitting on logs, they drank cool shabazz punch and had a light bean pie desert after dinner of grilled halal lamb, chatting amidst the sounds of rushing water, birdcalls, and the buzz of crickets. Suddenly, one of them stood up with a cry.

Genesis of New American Leadership. Featuring a foreword by Imam Omar Shaheed and afterword by Imam Plemon T. El-Amin, Genesis of New American Leadership: Building the Community Life is one of the most powerful books from the American Muslim perspective since The Autobiography of Malcolm X!…It is the text from which organizations in the Association of Imam W. Deen Mohammed adapted their mission statements. An examination of how millions of American Muslims moved from theocratic autocracy toward true Islamic democracy and the lessons for today’s leaders. Provocative, yet pragmatic, universal yet specific and one of the most intriguing books ever written by an American author on leadership. For Muslims this book is about the genesis of a new responsibility and for the non-Muslim, it is about the genesis of a new understanding and acceptance. FPLLC Qalam Books Division, English, hardcover, dust jacket, reference text: 336p.
“Education is the greatest tool for advancing the society.” We do want to advance our society, don’t we? Are you a part of a society or are you just a part of a Masjid?”―Imam W. Deen Mohammed (ra)
