Dahveed Muhammad, minister of Muhammad's Mosque #23, will be honored as UMOJA Inc.'s "Man of the Year" at a dinner at 6 p.m. Sunday in the Musician's Big 6 club at Fox and East North streets.
The mosque is a regular participant in community activities such as the Boys to Men Youth Empowerment Conference, where Muhammad and other members put on a workshop teaching African-American boys some of the history they don't learn in school but which can inspire them to achieve just as blacks before them did.
Samuel L. Radford III, president of the District Parent Coordinating Council, will host the event. Tickets are $25 and include food and live music by Oasis, featuring Sabu Adeyola on bass. For tickets, call 533-6283 or 578-3571.
