Niciah Mujahid is an award-winning activist, scholar, writer, and educator, and a devoted wife and mother. A 4th generation Washingtonian, she graduated from The Howard University’s School of Divinity with a Master’s in Social Justice and Ethics, after earning a Bachelor’s in Political Science, and Africana Studies from the University of Notre Dame.
Before joining FBC, her career focus was at the intersection of Black healing and multi-level policy. In 2017, she founded an organizational space that works to normalize spiritual and holistic wellness for Black and indigenous people as the foundation for political sovereignty and liberation. She now works as the Campaign Manager at FBC, reallocating resources toward the underserved and historically oppressed in DC.
Niciah is a true dreamer-Pisces and works to incorporate intentional imagining, play, and ritual in her work toward dismantling systems and building new ones in their place. She is a mama of two girls and wife to an amazing and supportive movement lawyer. When not working, she’s likely facilitating healing spaces on the Soufside, studying religion, meditating, finger painting with a toddler or two, or sitting beside the Anacostia River.
