Every year, we honor our mothers who gave birth to us, but we often do not think of the woman who gave birth to humanity, which is the original woman, the black woman. Did you know that according to an anthropologist named Donald Johanson and his assistant Tom Gray, the oldest bones to be found, as of this date are of a Black woman?

These bones were discovered on November 24, 1974, in Hadar, Ethiopia. According to Dr. Cheikh Anta Diop, the evidence of early humans who lived between 2 and 6 million years ago come totally from Africa. Since the bones of the earliest female were found on November 24, 1974, that day will be used to celebrate Mothers of Civilization Day.

Mothers of Civilization Day is a day to recognize and be thankful for the first women on the planet, the original women, regardless of their ethnic background. Original women are women of color from Africa, India, and Asia, etc. These women have kept traditions alive, taught customs, and created a beautiful culture of love and pride.

The idea for the new holiday was developed by Audrey Muhammad, founder and publisher of Virtue Today Magazine, which highlights positive images of black women and men. The magazine represents women in the light they were made to be shown…with beauty, class, and intelligence.

Parents Improve Your Children's Reading Skills


Rosa Higgs, a teacher from Berkeley, California, who has proven why phonics instruction matters. Her phonics workbook series, entitled Read in 40 Hours or Less, are designed to help Black students learn to read well and beyond grade level in less than 40 hours of direct instruction.

Across the country, students are experiencing a K-12 crisis in reading skills. In the state of California, millions of dollars are spent every year on education, but students and teachers are overwhelmed by COVID-19 and distance learning and the lack of improved reading skills for many vulnerable Black students proves it.

The coronavirus was a test of America’s ability to provide quality and equitable education to all students. The virus wrecked the school system with unfathomable momentum highlighting known disparities of Black students' access to computers, the internet, trauma, and basic needs such as food and adequate shelter. The Read in 40 Hours or Less workbook series can take schools from inadequate to extraordinary by improving reading skills for our vulnerable Black and Brown students.

Meet Nynoka Grant, founder and CEO of Akoyn Beauty, an Atlanta-based Black-owned company that manufactures vegan-friendly personal care specialty products that are especially for women. Their premium soaps, skin creams, and body butter are handmade from the finest all-natural ingredients. Now, more than ever, taking care of yourself and remaining stress-free is a priority.

Nynoka comments, "Women are indeed running the world, wielding political power but also facing unfair burdens during the global pandemic. Some women are working from home while homeschooling children. Others are essential workers. Women across the world are remaining indoors for safety reasons. Pandemic life is different, and everyone has adjusted. However, self-care is not optional."

She continues, "This is not the time to abandon everyday beauty routines. Caring for your skin must be part of a twice-daily ritual, and the right all-over-body products can keep every inch of your skin nourished."  For more info click here | To see the product line click here

Article & Video On the Celebration Of
Mothers of Civilization Day Continues Below...

How do you celebrate this new Mothers of Civilization Day, holiday? It is a day that you take your grandmothers, mothers, sisters, and aunts and put them in a “circle of love” and have each family member share a positive word about each woman. It is also a time for a history lesson and to let the children know that they are looking at the first woman to be on the planet.

This can be done at a family gathering or on a Zoom. Some may even celebrate it during that Thanksgiving weekend since many families will be together. It is a non-religious, non-commercialized Holiday. More information about the day can be found on the National Archives Day website, which now lists it as a national day at

One of the first women I reached out to about the idea was human rights activist, YoNasDa Lonewolf,” said Audrey Muhammad, “Queen YoNasDa is Oglala Lakota (Native American) and Black; she immediately agreed to support the idea.”

Men also came on board to support the idea. “The first group I mentioned the idea to was Masters of Business Network founded by Brother Bedford,” said Mrs. Muhammad. “The Masters of Business Network helps black men and women develop their entrepreneurial ideas. He and the organization also agreed to support the day.” Other supporters joined in including Harmony in Diversity Productions, Queendom Come, Inc., Black and Global Business Network, Brother Teacher Ajamu Minkah Kafele (MA), Muhammad Boxing Academy, and many others.

You may register for the official launch party which will be on November 24, 2021, at
