Wali Mohammed (R.I.P.)
Our beloved brother Wali Mohammad (fka Walter 6X Youngblood), long time trainer and companion to Muhammad Ali, as well as one of the pioneers of Harlem's Temple #7 and Newark's Temple #25, has returned to Allah. Services were held today at Harlem's Unity Funeral Home. Bro. Wali Mohammed also worked with boxing great Sugar Ray Robinson, also among jazz greats such as Dinah Washington, Ella Fitzgerald, Etta James and many others, as well as helped convert 5% Nation founders Clarence 13X (Allah) and Justice to Islam. He was once married to Gail Fisher, one of the first Black women to appear on the TV screen who starred on the Television Program "Mannixx" as Peggy.
May Allah Be Pleased With HIm, and may He Rest in Power.
