Black Cat Community Center
This is where it all started. The Black Cat movement, founded by the venerable Reverend Mohammed Iman, began as a small community movement seeking to empower the disenfranchised people of the Washington DC slums—black, white, and every color in between. Since its inception, however, the Reverend’s original vision has been twisted by his followers into a Black Power movement that aims for advancement of Black people at the expense of other races. This small corner building in the Anacostia neighborhood still serves as the epicenter of this nationwide movement, even as the influence of the movement grows across the country and the world. It is a testament to the integrity of the Reverend that the small donation-based thrift store that initially funded the community center remains active, despite the fact that the movement has attracted massive donations from all sorts of benefactors, from Rappers, to Authors, to Actors, as well as thousands of everyday people.
