Announcing the Taneya Gethers Muhammad Memorial Scholarship!! Taneya was a writer, educator, librarian, community builder, proud graduate of Spelman College, and one of my closest friends. She rigorously studied the history of radicalism at Spelman, wrote about the importance of renewing our commitment to cultural activism, and created library programs to educate the community about our undertold stories.

I’m honored to have partnered with the college and Dr. Ruha Benjamin to develop this fund in her name, supporting young scholar activists. We hope that in providing funding for Spelman students who share Taneya’s commitment to making a radical impact on campus and in the community, we will continue her fierce devotion to her family, both blood and spirit.
