(Brother Jesse Blog) I just returned home from a wonderful weekend in Dallas, Texas. I was invited by Nation of Islam Student Minister Jeffery Muhammad of Muhammad Mosque No. 48 to host a social media workshop and tweet up party on Saturday, June 8.
I kicked off the workshop with a brief powerpoint presentation rooted in how The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan uses social media. Then we jumped right into the fundamentals of Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. I fielded wonderful questions to help many overcome their aversion to the use of these valuable tools. Participants were very engaging and some joined Twitter for the first time!
Later that evening the practical application started as we all logged on to NOI.org/TheTime to watch and live tweet during Part 22 of “The Time and What Must Be Done” series by Minister Farrakhan. For the 4th consecutive week, #Farrakhan and #TheTime were nationally trending topics on Twitter and Dallas definitely helped to make that happen! Not only that, they had the hashtags trending locally in the Dallas-Fort Worth area as well. Way to go Twitter soldiers!
Then Sunday morning, Student Min. Jeffery called me to the “witness stand” to deliver the main lecture. It was indeed an humbling experience and I’ve received continued positive feedback from those who attended. All I can say is All Praise is due to Allah for The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad and his Top Student The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. I’m just striving to be a better witness bearer and testify whenever and however I can…that’s real talk.
