Rizza Islam was born on March 17th, 1990 in the Richland Farms area of Compton, CA. He is the youngest of 10 children, 5 boys and 5 girls. Growing up in the city of Compton, he was constantly forced to confront the daily plight of an inner city youth trying to make it with meager resources. Gang violence, drugs, and peer pressure were an everyday occurrence where he grew up. As a child he went to Winnie Mandela children’s learning village where he learned traditional African morals & principals along with basic school subjects. He went to Fort Irwin for middle school and for highschool he was a student at opportunities for learning in Long Beach, CA. Rizza Islam attended Compton college majoring in political science and did not graduate by choice. From the age of 11 he has sought to learn in a multitude of subjects as an autodidactic. At the age of 9 after witnessing the condition of the people in his community Rizza decided that he wanted to do something about it.
He became a student at the World Literacy Crusade, a nonprofit literacy program and social betterment organization. He was receiving tutoring on his homework in 1999. He was asked one day to help a young student with their homework and he agreed. After helping this student he felt empowered at seeing that his help was effective and from that day his purpose has been to save his people and change the world!
Since the beginning of his humanitarian efforts he was working as a tutor in the World Literacy Crusade at 11 years old primarily working with children & adults on phonics and communication skills. By the time he was 13 he had become the director of language arts whereby he had nearly 20 tutors under his belt whom he had trained. He worked daily for years until he became a course supervisor where he was responsible for delivering services to an entire course room that fluctuated between 30 – 60 students a day!
Students who were parents, highschool students, drug addicts, students fresh out of prison, students on probation, students in college and throughout the years at least 2 students from every gang in L.A, Compton, Watts, South Gate, Lynwood and Long Beach! All of this while being younger than nearly 90% of them!
By his 17th birthday Rizza had become the director of public services where he now would schedule and meet with teachers, counselors, probation officers, foster care providers, group home directors, principals, judges and elected officials to promote services that were being delivered that helped human beings in multiple ways! All of this was a great success and he had helped tens of thousands of people! However, it wasn’t enough. He wanted to help more! So he continued to work at the world literacy Crusade 5 sometimes 6 days a week 9a.m to 6p.m. He also volunteered at the Y.M.C.A where he worked with children every year at summer camp.
He had been so successful at helping so many people that the Y.M.C.A chose him to speak at their International “Martin Luther Kings brotherhood breakfast” at the Westin Bonaventure hotel where he spoke in front of over 3,500 people of which more than 200 of them were mayors, elected officials and/or law enforcement.
Rizza Islam applied and was accepted into the “Mellineum momentum leadership development institute” where he along with 150 others went through a rigorous 6 month leadership bootcamp. Over 70% were degree holding college graduates! At the end of this 6 month’s only 15 people had graduated and Rizza was placed in the top TWO all while holding NO college degrees.
By the time Rizza had accomplished these things he had become the international ambassador of the World Literacy Crusade where he now represented over 36 chapters in 6 countries.
These locations included Ghana, Africa where Isaac Hayes (who was the international spokesperson at the time) was asked by princess Asie Ocansey to build a World literacy Crusade in their country to help with the literacy level of the children.
He, along with the Founder (Rev. Alfreddie Johnson) and the executive director (Dr. Hanan Islam) flew to Africa and built a school where it was filled with books, and where the children could go to learn and study! As a result, Isaac Hayes was made a king in Ghana as a thank you for what World Literacy Crusade had done for them and their people!
In 2008 Rizza was flown to Washington D.C where he represented The World Literacy Crusade to meet with then presidential candidate Barack Obama at the congressional Black caucus.
Rizza has gained much notoriety and has received over a dozen awards from well known organizations such as; The YMCA, Youth For Human Rights international for educating over 2,000 inner city youth about their rights as a human being.
Awarded the Stephanie Hamilton “Community spirit” award by the Ebony Awakening Foundation for saving the lives of more than 15,000 inner city youth & adults.
Awarded by he Mayor & City Council of Compton California for graduating from the Millineum momentum leadership development institute as the only individual who completed the program that was NOT a college graduate to name a few.
All received for educating & mentoring inner city youth in urban communities. He has delivered classes on Drug Education, Life Skills, Communication skills, Anger Management, Health, Study Skills, Parenting, human rights and so much more. Collectively between delivering at the World Literacy Crusade and over 8 different schools he has inspired, and salvaged the lives of more than 40,000 people! To record, Rizza’s oldest student was 82 years old.
Rizza Islam is a registered member of the Nation Of Islam at mosque #27 – Los Angeles under student Minister Abdul Malik Sayyid Muhammad (formerly known as Tony Muhammad) the Western regional representative of The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan.
In 2015 Rizza Islam helped to break the horrific secret about the MMR (measles, mumps, Rubella) vaccination and how it had been genetically coded to give African-American males Autism!
He had set up a meeting with key leaders within the community including Min. Tony Muhammad and individuals within the political sector such as Bobby Kennedy (Robert F. Kennedy jr) and Brian Hooker. The information was so massive that he was flown to Chicago to meet with The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan to bring it to him! Bobby Kennedy has confessed that NO GROUP wanted to expose this information and that NOONE wanted to work with him and that Min. Farrakhan was the LAST HOPE. As a result of Rizza along with others witnessed this information become exposed to over 1.9 BILLION PEOPLE in over 42 countries at the 20th year anniversary of the Million Man March in Washington D.C! The horrific truth that the senior lead scientist at the CDC Dr. William Thompson confessed that the MMR vaccination gave Black males AUTISM!
In July of 2016, Rizza Islam representing Min. Tony Muhammad helped hip-hop artist “The Game” & “Snoop Dogg” bring peace between the Bloods, Crips and the L.A police department where a meeting was held and directly following the meeting Mayor Eric Garcetti (of Los Angeles) and Police Chief Charlie Beck (Of Los Angeles) announced on national television that peace will be the new order and that police have agreed to work with and unite with the Bloods and the Crips to end the bloodshed.
2 weeks after this on July 17th the first ever “United hood nation” was called where bloods, Crips, Latino gangs, The new Black panther party, The Moorish science temple, The Nation Of Islam, The Church Of Scientology, Multiple Christian churches all together over 3,000 people came together and stood up to agree to end the war and end the killing OF us BY us!
As a result of THIS, Rizza was brought once again to meet with The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan for his outstanding accomplishment as a youth leader & humanitarian within the community! Gangs all over America have been uniting directly as a result!
Between the age of 11 and 19 Rizza had been professionally trained in acting, singing, dancing, sign language and was working under Kendall Park with J.L.A casting going on auditions as well as modeling.
He had a contract on the table with Nickelodeon and Disney but gave up his life in the performing arts to save his people and has never looked back since!
Rizza Islam has utilized social media over the years to expose multiple things
Using social media his hope is to inspire all the members of the human family to fight for freedom, justice, equality and unity!
