Mike Clark & Ali Muhammad Productions - MCAMP says
Shahrazad Ali born in Atlanta, raised in Cincinnati, Ohio is an author of several books, including an 180-page, self-published paperback called The Blackman’s Guide to Understanding the Blackwoman. The book was controversial bringing “forth community forums, pickets and heated arguments among blacks in many parts” of the US when it was published in 1989.

Stories about the book appeared in the Los Angeles Times, New York Times, Washington Post, Newsday, and Newsweek. Ali appeared on ‘Tony Brown’s Journal’, the ‘Sally Jessy Raphael Show’, ‘The Phil Donahue Show’, and ‘Geraldo’ TV programs, was ridiculed on In Living Color. The book reportedly “brought black bookstores new business”, while other black bookstores banned it. It also provoked a book of essays (called Confusion by Any Other Name) “exploring the negative impact” of The Blackman’s Guide.

In August 2013, Ali “re-emerged” in the media as a guest commentator on the HLN program Dr. Drew on Call. She was also interviewed on the The Trisha Goddard Show along with white supremacist Craig Cobb, agreeing with Cobb that the black and white races should be separated.

Ali is a member of the Nation of Islam, the mother of 12 children, nine of them adopted.
