As we come to terms with the transition of Dr. Debra Majeed, we fondly remember her role as Board Director of the Daughters of the African Atlantic Fund. She served as a Board Treasurer, and Finance and South African Consultation Committee member. She was Professor Emeritus of Religious Studies at Beloit College, WI, earning tenure at Beloit College as the first Muslim African- American woman. She was recognized as the Edwin F. Wilde, Jr. Distinguished Service Professor. Indeed, she truly exemplified true servant leadership, community, and global activism. Dr. Majeed will be forever missed by the Daughters of the African Atlantic Fund. As colleagues, we will remember her grounded presence, energy, sense of humor, and warm wisdom. Her dedicated and faithful support to the vision and mission of the Daughters of the African Atlantic Fund through her resources, scholarship, and time is worth celebrating and emulating. May her life and legacy live on and inspire. Inshallah
