    Teenagers Rock!

    in Youth

    What makes teens the most interesting of all the ages?  You tell me!  I know that it was a time of "testing the waters" and no one older knew a dam thing because they were in the way like a dam!   (Smile)

    What is it that makes teens rock the world?  Why do we retard the progress of learning?  What the heck do I mean by that? Do our schools slow down (retard) the individual learning process that starts when we are infants?  Is life about gaining higher levels of consciousness?  What is to love about teens?  Everything?  Sure, didn't you love that time of life when "adults" made little sense and "babies" wore diapers, and "YOU" mattered most as you went about trying all kinds of new things.

    in Culture

    Sabrina discusses the importance of understanding that teenagers mask depression in different ways than adults. Sometimes they are not aware they are depressed. There out of control behavior, angry outburst, irritablity and loosing hope and interest in life could be signs of depression. According to the Tenn Depression Statistics: "Teen depression can affect a teen regardless of gender, social background, income level, race, or school or other achievements, though teenage girls report suffering from depression more often than teenage boys. Teenage boys are also less likely to seek help or recognize that they suffer from depression, probably due to different social expectations for boys and girls - girls are encouraged to express their feelings while boys are not."

  • 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.
