THE PEACE THRU JUSTICE FOUNDATION
28 SAFAR 1434 A.H.
(January 10, 2012)
Assalaamu Alaikum (Greetings of Peace):
Faye Bellamy Powell died in Georgia, on January 6, of pancreatic cancer. Faye was a friend and colleague of Imam Jamil (the former H. Rap Brown) and Sr. Karima Al-Amin during the human rights struggle in America in the turbulent 60s.
She was also one of three panelists featured in the special program that we did on "The Life and Legacy of Imam Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin" at Georgia State University a little over a year ago.
The video of Faye (one of the founding members of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, aka SNCC), Sr. Karima, and Professor Akinyele Umoja, sharing insights on that rich historical legacy is still available.
May ALLAH give patience to the family of Faye Bellamy-Powell, and have mercy on the soul of the human rights warrior who has now passed on.
El-Hajj Mauri' Saalakhan
