"At a fundraiser for Rising South Literacy School, coordinated by Dr. Dedra Muhammad, I had an opportunity to meet Chuck D. and thank him for being a revolutionary voice in the struggle for social justice and human liberation. How cool is that!" ~Dr. Perry, Alabama A&M University

I’d like to give a heartfelt commendation to the leader of Rising South Literacy School, Dr. Dedra Muhammad. Her efforts in our community have been far reaching and long lasting. Since 2009 I’ve had the blessing of being a part of the movement she started to inform, ignite, empower and enthuse our people. Dedra you have done more for me in a positive way than most others outside of my own family and I am eternally grateful for your instruction, insight and patience throughout these many years

God bless you, your husband and the entire family
