CWSC Learning Lab: On Our 40th Anniversary Islamic Evolution
[Click here for an encore presentation of PART I of this discussion at American Muslim 360 Radio for Friday, December 18, 2015.]
You’re invited to a CWSC Special Learning Lab focusing on Imam W. D. Mohammed (RA 1933-2008) and the transformation of a community. The Imam ascended the podium at the original Nation of Islam’s 1975 Saviors Day Annual Convention to begin a historic evolution. Now some 40 years later we ask how far have we come–what remains to be done in the continuing evolution of a people charged to remake the world. This is Part II of a continuing national discussion begun at the CWSC Roundtable at American Muslim 360 on the historic evolution and transition of the largest identifiable body of American Muslims to the proper practice of Al-Islam.
Join us today Sunday, December 20, 2015 @ 3 p.m. EST via the CWSC National Learning Lab Conference Line at (712) 775-7031 and enter Meeting ID: 748-942-715#.

Marcus Lambert, Biomedical Research, Director of Diversity and Student Services at Weill Cornell Graduate School of Medical Sciences; Mukhtar Muhammad, Executive Director, CWSC, Inc.; Professor Ayesha K. Mustafaa, Editor Muslim Journal; and Mark Shahid, AM360 Host of the CWSC Roundtable, Director Public Affairs, CWSC & AM360.
This series that first began earlier in 2015 will be a fitting finale as we look forward to 2016 and beyond with a focus that includes current events that challenge our community and every community in America and the world..

Expanding 2016 College Scholarship Opportunities: The Payton Next Generation Scholarship
We’ve added another scholarship for the 2016 school year ― The James and Henrietta Payton Next Generation Scholarship, awarded annually to a graduating, college bound high school senior, current undergraduate or graduate student who exemplifies a strong commitment to educational excellence and community service as demonstrated by superior academic achievement and community involvement.
The Scholarship is established in honor of the late Mr. & Mrs. James and Henrietta Payton who while themselves being denied access to educational opportunities in the State of Texas because of their ethnicity, nevertheless struggled against all odds to ensure their four daughters would have a better educational opportunity…Click here to continue reading about the Payton Next Generation Scholarship.

Share Your Jumah with the World-Broadcast Live at American Muslim 360
Each Friday, on the blessed day of Jumah, American Muslim 360 (AM360) fulfills one of its most important community services–broadcasting the Salatul Jumah from a masjid or Islamic center. In fact, AM360 broadcasts more Jumahs from our group intellect throughout the nation than any other resource in America.
For those most vulnerable, like the elderly, disabled, sick and others unable to visit a musella on Friday, AM360 offers them a vital link to hear a Jumah khutbah from the comfort of their home.
As an imam or khatib, you’re invited to help us meet this vital community service by sharing your Jumah with the world. AM360 makes it easy With just a simple telephone call, you and your local community can share the message of Al-Islam with the world…together we can remake the world. Click here to get started.
