    Mother’s Milk #SamiyyahSaafirMuhammad 323.927.2913

    in Family

    Samiyyah Saafir-Muhammad was born Jacqueline Glover in New York City in 1951. After spending her early years in foster care, moving four times before the age of three, she settled in with her aunt, following her father’s passing.


    While still in elementary school Samiyyah took an interest in helping other students do well, joining “The Future Teachers’ Club” in the fifth grade. As a high school student, Samiyyah became aware her people’s struggle for freedom—witnessing civil rights demonstrations, protests, assassinations and riots—and decided she wanted to help somehow.  It was in this atmosphere that she went off to Northeastern University in Boston where she majored in Education. Her stay there was short-lived, however, as she was introduced to the teachings of The Honorable Elijah Muhammad and thereafter joined the Nation of Islam. Within the Nation of Islam’s Muhammad University, Samiyyah underwent educational training and worked as a teacher’s assistant.


    Since 2005, Samiyyah has had the privilege of serving as the Directress at Muhammad University of Islam in Atlanta, which serves students from Pre-K to the eighth grade. She has been blessed to carry on the 84-year educational tradition, which was started by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and his brave followers in the 1930’s.


    A widow after 35 years of marriage, Samiyyah presently enjoys the blessing of her and her husband’s nine children: six sons and three daughters, all of whom attended or are attending HBCUs. Samiyyah has been a mother to not only her nine children, but also to her two stepchildren, her nieces and nephews, her eight grandchildren and countless other children and adults in the community who come to her for advice, wisdom and guidance. Affectionately called MamaMiyyah, Samiyyah’s house is never empty.

    Not So Mad Science #HaroldMuhammad 323.927.2913

    in Science

    Hosted By: Harold Muhammad


    Harold, an eclectic and voracious reader, began his venture in the world of the written word as a child of 2 years.  Scraps of paper, candy wrappers, dictionary's right through the entire encyclopedia Britannica. Yet Harold was driven to books of the sciences. Physics, Astronomy, Biology, Chemistry, he met them all with great wonder and fascination. He delved into each discipline as if his very life depended upon understanding its depth.


    It was not until the words of The Hon. Elijah Muhammad that the essence and understanding of the sciences began to have true purpose and meaning. He said, "all there is to know is written in a book, read".


    Harold began his collegiate pursuit at Hampton Institute; he then forayed to Fairleigh Dickenson University. At FDU the practice of the Social Sciences, public activism, and public speaking became a trusted part of mental fabric.


    Harold is the husband to Celestine Muhammad, and the father of 10 extraordinary children, and 8 grandchildren. Harold has the benefit of having the most exceptional and wondrous teachers to whom he owes all that he has learned, will learn and knows to this very day, The Most  Hon. Elijah Muhammad, the Hon. Min. Louis Farrakhan, his Father Alfred Eatman, and his Grandfather  the Late Captain, Harold D. Hook.

    Henry Marraffa Jr. joins me to discuss his Gaithersburg Mayoral bid

    in News

    After nearly 20 years serving on the Gaithersburg City Council, Henry Marraffa Jr., a Republican, hopes to move up to the mayor’s seat in this fall’s election.


    The former council member is focusing his campaign on economic development. He specifically mentioned the MD-355 corridor, Lakeforest and eastern Gaithersburg in general as all having room to grow commercially.


    He touted past efforts to build out the RIO Washingtonian Center, a commercial hub for restaurants and retail stores, despite early criticism of the development.


    As for future development projects, Marraffa said that he would like to construct an arena with structured parking on the Gaithersburg Fairgrounds which would serve as a venue for concerts, plays, and high school graduations.


    First elected to the city council in 1995, Marraffa began serving three years before former Mayor W. Edward Bohrer died in office. That paved the way for the council to appoint Sydney Katz mayor and served in that office until his election to the County Council last year.


    Marraffa graduated from Montgomery Blair High School in Silver Spring and earned two college degrees: one in engineering from the University of Maryland and a bachelor of business administration (BBA) degree from Southeastern University.


    He worked as a contractor, including high-profile projects such as the construction of Disney World and the World Trade Center. He cites his business experience as one of his qualifications for mayor.


    Prior to his election to the city council, Marraffa served on Gaithersburg’s board of appeals. He was appointed to the Maryland Physical Fitness Commission in 1985. He lives in Gaithersburg with his wife Donna. They have five children and six grandchildren.
