On April 16, Brother Jesse Muhammad officially became a guest blogger for HoustonBelief.com, which is the Houston Chronicleâ€™s religion page. This page features local bloggers from across faith traditions. One of their goals is to expand the perspectives represented on HoustonBelief to help their readers learn more and better understand the religious traditions in Houston.
The title of Brother Jesseâ€™s blog is The Upper Situation Room
â€œHoustonBelief is always looking for contributors who can help represent Houstonâ€™s diverse groups of people and faiths. Writing as a member of the Nation of Islam, Jesse Muhammad adds to the traditions represented on our site. Heâ€™s a local blogger whoâ€™s already made a name for himself writing about issues in the Black community, so I think heâ€™ll be able to start meaningful conversations about race and religion on HoustonBelief,â€ said Kate Shellnutt, web producer for HoustonBelief.
â€œIt is a great honor to be given this platform to further share the Teachings of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad as taught by the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. It is an opportunity to educate readers about the majesty of the Nation of Islam plus bring a fresh perspective on issues impacting the Black community,â€ said Brother Jesse.
Brother Jesse did not waste any time as he addressed false labels placed on Minister Farrakhan and Nation of Islam in his first two blog articles. Please join Brother Jesse in The Upper Situation Room at: http://blogs.chron.com/brotherjesse
