In the United States, Muslim schools are by far the most vibrant examples of Islamic progress and self-determination. Since the 1930’s, the Clara Mohammed School System (CMS) has been at the cutting edge of this movement. Despite numerous threats of imprisonment by local authorities, the late Sister Clara Mohammed (wife of the Hon. Elijah Mohammed) started Islamic schools in America when she refused to send her children to the public school system. A very strong-willed woman, in the mold of Sojourner Truth and Harriet Tubman, Sister Clara Mohammed did not feel that the existing environment provided the proper education, self-respect, and dignity that her children deserved.
