Early life and education
Anwar Jackson was born Tajik Assata Anwar Bahoul in Atlanta, Georgia on July 16, 1978. She was raised in Atlanta, Georgia's southside community of College Park. Anwar Jackson went on to further her education at Georgia State University. It was here that Anwar found her passion in activism. She gave up traditional college dorm life to devote more time to her activist positions. She was active with the YMCA's Saturday Breakfast Program for children, Knowledge Ciphers, a new book program for poor children and various homeless feeding programs.
While pregnant with her second child, Anwar Jackson went on to establish Mothers of Black/Brown Babies from her negative experience with the governmental assistance programs for families.
In 2004, Anwar Jackson put M.O.B.B. into practice. She began going to various public housing projects giving out food and hygiene care packages to families in need. She assembled these packages at home and hand delivered them in her truck. In 2006, M.O.B.B. became a movement in which Anwar Jackson wrote and developed various programs to strengthen parenting amongst mothers. The organization continues to serve families through emergency food and clothes assistance, workshops and working on behalf of incarcerated mothers and children. When interviewed by Afrikan Holistic Parenting blog, Anwar gave the following advice for mothers who struggle:
Be a pillar of strength for your youths. They're watching. Motherhood- Now that's gangsta.
