Shahida Muhummad is freelance writer for various magazines including Clutch Magazine, Ebony Online.
Recently, we had the opportunity to speak with Shahida about her article, I’m Not African American…I’m Black
During our conversation, Shahida recalls what it was like growing up in Philadelphia, how she go into writing, meeting Sister Souljah and her influence.
As we continue our chat, Shahida tells what made her write the article and why, how she pitched the article and Ebony’s response, why she does not like the term African-American, what she feels is harming Black identity today and how can this be changed, the difference between African-American and Black in her words and her thoughts on the state of Black America.
We conclude our interview by Shahida telling us what should the Black community be focusing on to improve itself, her thoughts on the state of young Black men, what is in her future, some of favorite writers and her call to action for Black men and Black women.
