Raheem chatted with the survivors, listening to their graphic stories of abuse at the hands of loved ones and offered his words of comfort. This series gives audiences a glimpse into the lives of the extraordinary women who have overcome domestic violence.
One of the many compelling testimonies you will hear, in the touching video, is from Mildred Muhammad, the ex-wife (and intended target) of the D.C. sniper- John Muhammad. Her harrowing tale will make you realize just how grateful she is to have survived a tragic situation.
While you may or may not have encountered domestic violence in your personal life, it affects us all. 1 in 4 women will experience domestic violence during her lifetime. Those are horrifying statistics but raising awareness through projects like Raheem’s “QUeen For A Day” can bring about change.
Wipr your eyes and stay tuned for part II…
