Sexual abuse, the murder of her sister and mother in two separate incidents and infuriating racism-those are just a few of the obstacles that Sister Claudette Marie Muhammad has faced throughout her life. She's also enjoyed great accomplishments. Sister Claudette has fought many battles to ensure equality for African Americans and women. Her most recent work has been as chief of protocol for Minister Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam.
She has written about her experiences in the aptly named book, Memories.
