Jazz Show on WPFW, will be honored at a special tribute on Friday, March 23 in recognition of his life and work as an independent journalist.

Fiercely independent, Askia Muhammad has devoted his life to covering the stories and issues that are largely missed or misreported in the corporate-owned media. His objective and insightful coverage of war, racism, colonialism, poverty and inequality from a global perspective have provided an invaluable counterpoint for the people of Washington, D.C., and the country.

His work as an independent journalist spans more than four decades. Askia’s esteemed career in journalism includes editing and reporting for a host of media outlets, including WPFW, The Final Call, The Washington Informer, National Public Radio's "All Things Considered," Soundprint Radio, Chicago Defender, The Washington Post "Outlook" Section and The Baltimore Sun. The former editor of Muhammad Speaks newpaper and a Washington correspondent since 1977, his reports date back to Soledad Prison Brother George Jackson, the trial of Angela Davis and the second inauguration of Richard Nixon, and span the terms of eight U.S. presidents.

Join us in this special tribute and show your support for Brother Askia Muhammad and the critical contribution of independent journalism at WPFW. As we honor and pay tribute to one individual we do so in the recognition of all those at WPFW and other independent media.
