Mustafaa, editor for the Muslim Journal; AM360 executive producer William Kareem; Imam Bashir Ali, Midwest & National Convener of Imams in association with the Community of Imam W. Deen Mohammed; Ni’mat Shaheed, author and host of AM360’s The Pearls of Women: Qur’anic Mondays; CWSC’s executive director Mukhtar Muhammad and Honorable Imam Judge David Shaheed of the American Coalition for Good Government, for the 40th Anniversary of a Transition & Evolution…A Look back, Look Now & Look Ahead.

CWSC Roundtable host Mark Shahid stated, “the panel will focus on the Imam’s leadership and the transformation of a community now poised to truly help remake the world. The Imam 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. This final episode in a series that began earlier in 2015 will be a fitting finale as we look forward to 2016 and beyond with a focus that includes current events that challenge our community and every community in America and the world.. We’re asking believers to send in questions for the panelists now at And on event day, we’ll take comments via facebook, twitter and email.”

Expanding 2016 College Scholarship Opportunities: The Payton Next Generation Scholarship


We’ve added another scholarship for the 2016 school year ― The James and Henrietta Payton Next Generation Scholarship, awarded annually to a graduating, college bound high school senior, current undergraduate or graduate student who exemplifies a strong commitment to educational excellence and community service as demonstrated by superior academic achievement and community involvement.

The Scholarship is established in honor of the late Mr. & Mrs. James and Henrietta Payton who while themselves being denied access to educational opportunities in the State of Texas because of their ethnicity, nevertheless struggled against all odds to ensure their four daughters would have a better educational opportunity…Click here to continue reading about the Payton Next Generation Scholarship.
