Don’t sleep on this generation…As we were out going door-to-door in the Southeast Houston community, these young gods asked us for a copy of The Final Call Newspaper and then started sharing their thoughts on Presidents Obama and Trump. One of them even ran over to the others nearby playing catch with a baseball and said, “Man, look who is on the cover of their paper.” And another one had a few “choice words” for Trump.😂😂😂 … maaaaan we love this generation! They fuel us to keep pushing in the streets spreading life, light and power. • #TheFinalCall #Farrakhan #NationOfIslam #blackgods
Ms. Juanita aka “The Kool Cup Lady” is a mother of the Southeast Houston community we’ve been consistently pushing on the corners and going door to door in. The young people adore her. She has become our family and she always expresses her appreciation and love for the work Allah is blessing us to do weekly in the area. And in the midst of a very serious turbulent moment today, she was comforted by our presence that de-escalated a violent situation that could have possibly led to gunfire. All Praise is Due to Allah. We thank Allah for The Example & Guidance of The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. He just said on The Cliff Kelley Show, “The F.O.I. is out in the streets; out in the worst neighborhoods trying to bring peace. We could do more, but we need your help…Don’t stand on sideline and just watch for us.” #Farrakhan #TheFinalCall #mission #squashthebeef #2FrontWar [📸 @lintonmuhammad]

WATCH THE FULL PRESS CONFERENCE BELOW.
Women and girls of various ages, religions, and social economic backgrounds came together as one sisterhood at the Shrine of the Black Madonna located 5309 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. Houston, TX 77021 on February 11, 2017 to support Queendom Come, Inc’s Fundraiser “THE CROWNING”.
The Shrine was the perfect gathering place for this royal affair hosted by the founders of Queendom Come Inc as it’s a purposeful space of enlightenment and love. As women were walking in the venue throughout the day wearing head pieces, scarves, wraps, turbans, weaves, afros, dread locks, braids, to support the organization it was evident that each felt welcomed and a sense of belonging. The décor was modernly regal as purple African fabric draped the furnishing and weaved around candles lightly burning to illuminate the stage as Queen Wakiti opened up the gathering with prayer. The beaded crystals cascading along the stairs with a gold crown placed in the center of a small glass table attracted the audience into the sacred setting where Queen Oshea gave a succinct introduction of the mission of the nonprofit and spoke on the purpose for the occasion.
(Source: Queendom Come, Inc. Newswire) The purpose of The Crowning Fundraiser was to provide women of color with a space to embrace their natural beauty and empower others to do the same. The intention of the gathering was to celebrate women of color who’ve made a choice to cover their heads based on consciousness of culture, historical pride, religious significance, or freedom of creativity. All those in attendance were able to listen to a diverse panel that openly discussed topics: such as, “cultural identity”; “the trend in head wrapping as a fashion in relation to historical significance”; “religious beliefs and value in women covering their hair”, as well as “the stigma against natural hairstyles in corporate America” and “The negative reaction of the beauty industry against ethnic styles”.
The esteemed panelist consisted of the Southwest regional MGT & GCC St. Captain of the Nation of Islam, Sister Valerie Muhammad, along with Coco Bates, an editor and fashion blogger. Also on center stage were, Joy Ekhator, a natural hair product entrepreneur of Nigerian descent and a wise scholar and matriarch of the community, Dr. Daa’iyah Farooq, whom offered insightful remarks on these sensitive gender issues. Unlike other self promoting fundraisers, this event offered an opportunity for other nonprofit organizations to network and work together to bring exposure to programs and resources that are dedicated to improving the condition of minority women and girls. Queendom Come founders know that they cannot do it alone so the theme repeatedly reiterated by the organizers during the program was that “Queens don’t compete, we collaborate”.
Queendom Come, Inc. recognizes that there is limitless immeasurable value in the female. Queendom Come, Inc. is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit female empowerment and mentoring organization established to teach, train and nurture girls as they transition to adults. The organization founders strongly believe that working to develop positive feminine expression, as well as providing inspirational role models and a caring support system to the youth and their mothers/guardians can significantly improve the lives of females in our society. Queendom Come, Inc’s mission is to teach and train females to value their self worth and virtue by cultivating the Queen within. Thus in an effort to raise funds to continue the progress that the organization has achieve, the founders and volunteers sold tickets while also soliciting sponsors to prepare for The Crowning fundraiser event. During the event there were innovative initiatives presented to address collective cultural concerns, a hilariously entertaining interactive head-wrapping competition, and a hands on protective styling demonstration presented by Malaika Phoenix Ali of UrbHol Vibe Inc., a lifestyle company.
Inside the venue, the attendees would stop to shop with the black business owners vending beautifully designed clothing, custom jewelry, and natural hair care products at this exclusive female only event. Innovated School of Beauty located in Pearland came out with an informational table to encourage youth to pursue cosmetology. Another benefit received by the participants, is that this event allowed collaboration with a diverse group of women from various professions and organizations. It was a united front as Queen Sadiyah instructed the women to gather together to close the gaps and connect in their shared space, then she directed them to hug each sister on the left and right. You could observe the mutual adoration that the women held for each other by simply knowing that they had agreed and made a commitment to support the community by attending this event.
Queen Qiana shared information about the Ascension program while passionately reminding the audience that their generous donations submitted for the occasion would allow Queendom Come Inc to work with girls across this city and state. At the conclusion of the event there were many who were eager to volunteer with the organization so the founders were grateful to establish long-lasting partnerships with others with a shared interest. Therefore, “The Crowning” not only brought in a monetary increase to a burgeoning organization, but it also enabled the expansion of a valuable sister circle that is needed to help every female create a life fit for a Queen.

From the blocks to knocking on doors, I thoroughly enjoyed today’s Truth Trafficking in the Southeast Houston community with my Fruit of Islam brothers. Praise be to Allah! 💯💪🏾
Back from Saviours’ Day and Back to Work. After an unforgettable time in Detroit, we were definitely excited to be back out in the Southeast Houston streets #TruthTrafficking door to door with the latest edition of The Final Call Newspaper. No better feeling than for the people to say they missed seeing us and their paper while we’re away. Praise be to Allah! Let’s get this work in!
A lot going on in Houston besides the Super Bowl….Here are a few shots from the ONE HOOD, ONE HOUSTON community event hosted on February 4th in honor of our fallen comrades Wicket Cricket and ZIN. Organized by Artists Respecting Community (A.R.C) and the Houston Justice Or Else Local Organizing Committee on the grounds of Good Hope Baptist Church.
While truth trafficking in the Southeast community with Brother Linton Muhammad, knocked on this brother’s door and his name is Jesse as well. He shared with us how he admires what the Nation of Islam is doing for Black people and said, “No offense to y’all but I’m Baptist.” I said, “Really? We are too…we’ve been baptized in The Word which has inspired us to be in the highways and byways like Jesus.”
He smiled, got a copy of The Final Call Newspaper and said he’d like to get a picture with us. All love. No division.
“Close the door on excuses”~The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan
Another spirited time of truth trafficking today with my Brother Linton Muhammad in the Southeast community. As always, if we see anyone within earshot we run over to shake their hands and engage them in a purposeful dialogue about life, current events and more. The people in the streets are HUNGRY for truth. The harvest is ripe… let’s get this work in.
