     Hidden Princess: The Rebirth of Making Mary 


This historical fiction piece is based on true accounts, and details the Black Experience.  Hidden Princess is the compelling story of the life and legacy of Vivian Johnson, a troubled soul trapped in an even more troubling time in American history. The narrative is centered on Vivian’s unending relationship drama with Lee Hiram, her less-than-apt suitor, the microcosm of which Muhammad uses to display for the reader the depths of contemporary relationships within a greater overall context. Set mostly during the transition between the Civil War and the Great Depression, Hidden Princess chronicles the daily travails of a nation – and its people– in flux. Still haunted by the ever-present specter of racism, the Johnson family soon succumbs to the lure of the Great Migration, joining the millions of other poor Black families seeking to escape the oppressive clutches of the South. Ultimately settling in Michigan, the fragmented family soon discovers no amount of travel will ever distance them from the generational curses inherently borne within each of them, manifesting themselves in myriad ways from alcoholism to promiscuity to even murder.

Muhammad is on a mission to bring awareness and attention to the violence and sexual assault against Black women and girls.
