  • 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.

    America the Fourth Reich: The Edge that Donald Trump Has

    in Culture

    Excerpt from the Declaration of Independence:


    "We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certian unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuits of Happines, That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men,deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its Foundation on such Principles and aorganizing its Powers in such Form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect hteir Safety and Happiness"


     


    Excerpt from the People's History of the United States


    During elections for the 1776 convention to frame the constitution for Pennsylvania, a Privates Committee urged voters to oppose  'great and overgrown rich men..they will be too apt to be framing distinctions in society...an enormous proportion of property vested in a few individuals is dangerous to the rights, and destructive of the common happiness of mankind, and thereofre every free state has a right by its laws to discourage the possession of such property


    In the countryside, where most people lived, there was a similar conflict of poor against rich, one which political leaders would mobilize the population against England, granting some benefits  for the rebelliouspoor,andmany more for themselves inthe process.  The tenant riots in the 1740s, the 1750s, the 1760s in the Hudson Valley and the rebellion in the northeastern New York that led to the carving of Vermont out of New York State were all the more sporadic rioting.  They were long lasting social movements highly organized involving the creation of countergovernments.
