Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf, socially conscientious objector

Last month former NBA standout player and socially conscientious objector, Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf, made some rounds through Harlem—including visits to a couple public schools, where he encouraged youths to know their culture, and to the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, paying particular attention to the Black Power exhibit—before settling in at the Malcolm X & Dr. Betty Shabazz Memorial and Educational Center later that evening.
