Terence Muhammad

The International Civil Rights Center and Museum will honor Brother Terence Muhammad at its virtual annual awards gala on January 30, 2021, for his decades-long commitment to developing community leaders, fostering needful conversations, and bridging activists and institutions. Terence Muhammad will be receiving the inaugural Keeper of the Flame Award, an award category created specifically to honor him.

Bro. Terence Muhammad has been a community activist and organizer for over two decades. His experience spans voter mobilization campaigns, issue advocacy, and coalition building in Black communities, faith communities, on college campuses, and among civil rights and progressive organizations.

He is pillar in Greensboro’s activist community, serving as a liaison. Terence Muhammad is considered the bridge between activists and community institutions. He honed his leadership skills under the tutelage of Ervin L. Brisbon while attending North Carolina A&T State University. Over the years, he has helped shape rising leaders and has become a noted contributing figure both here in Greensboro and abroad. He is quick to advise others that the fight for civil rights is a “movement, not a moment.”

Bro. Terence Muhammad currently serves as the community outreach manager for Hip Hop Caucus, which uses the power of our cultural expression to empower communities who are first and worst impacted by injustice.


Understanding that not all leaders are seen out front, Bro. Terence Muhammad proudly states that any given time, “you will see me doing.”
