Friends and family of Brooklyn’s Bedford Academy High School Principal Adofo Muhammad surprised him with a packed 50th birthday Zoom party on Saturday night, October 25, 2020.

Blushing and humbled, and surrounded by his wife Jillann, children Jade, Sayyed and Jabari, and extended family, the beloved educator was greeted by old friends and colleagues. Thanking all involved, especially his wife who had worked double time to get all his people to attend, Muhammad was visibly overwhelmed by the virtual reunion. As he navigates the new normal world of Department of Education COVID-era schooling, Muhammad is also pursuing his Ph.D.
