There is a saying that “behind every good man, is a good woman,” however, in the case of The Honorable Minister Farrakhan, the leader of The Nation of Islam and the convener of the Million Man March, “behind every great man is a phenomenal woman.”
Mother Khadijah Farrakhan, wife of The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, is featured on the cover of the current issue of Virtue Today Magazine, a inspirational new women’s magazine out of Raleigh, North Carolina, that focuses on uplifting women. Mother Farrakhan is featured along side Michelle Obama and Winnie Mandela for the cover story: Black First Ladies. Mother Farrakhan is the First Lady of The Nation of Islam.
The article shares interesting facts about Mother Farrakhan’s childhood(guess what team she was on as a teen?) as well as her work as a talented seamstress and humanitarian. She and her husband were childhood sweethearts and joined the Nation of Islam together in 1955. A beautiful family photo shows their nine wonderful children.
Also featured in this issue are the amazingly insightful articles entitled, “How to Give Birth to a God,” Act like a Lady; Dress Like a Queen, and the “Ultimate Debt Payoff” plan.
