The simple phrase “Find the good and praise it,” handed down to Dr. Betty Shabazz from her mother, became the cornerstone of a life lived powerfully, honorably, sincerely, and provided a winning formula that moved her through all of life’s challenges.
It is because of that that the Schomburg Center and Women In Islam, Inc. are proud to celebrate Dr. Shabazz’s legacy at our annual Dr. Betty Shabazz Awards Ceremony, which recognizes women of all backgrounds and faiths who demonstrate unwavering and courageous dedication to helping others. This year they are honored to present the Dr. Betty Shabazz award posthumously to Her Excellency Winnie Madikizela-Mandela!
Join them in celebrating the legacy of Dr. Shabazz and living examples of powerful and dedicated women.
