The 6th Human Excellence Awards Ceremony

On Saturday, July 18, 1992, the San Francisco Muslim Community Center held its 6th Human Excellence Awards Ceremony at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco, California.

The Human Excellence Awards Ceremony honored individuals and organizations who have displayed outstanding contributions throughout the Bay Area. One of the goals of the awards ceremony was to raise funds to build a Masjid and school.

"The religion of Islam teaches us that excellence is a part of the divine destiny of every human being. In a time when we constantly hear about the lack of role models for our youth, we believe it is our duty to present and acknowledge these distinguished people." Imam Abu Qadir Al-Amin.

Since its conception, the Human Excellence Awards has recognized efforts of not only the Muslim community, but also individuals and agencies outside the Muslim community who have pioneered themselves in selected areas of human interest.

This year's Keynote Speaker was Dr. Ali A. Mazrui, Ph. D., creator of the distinguished PBS series The Africans: A triple Heritage. The awardees honored for their contributions to Human Excellence included:
