Mildred Muhammad: Simon & Schuster Speakers Bureau

Mildred Muhammad

Domestic Violence Survivor and Victims Advocate

Few people have lived through the kind of horror that Mildred Muhammad has experienced and survived. After years of domestic violence at the hands of her ex-husband, John Allen Muhammad, she endured the agony of having her children kidnapped by him, the struggle to get them back, and then the terror of living with them in secrecy to avoid his discovery of where they were. It all culminated when he went on his infamous “Beltway Sniper” killing spree for which he was eventually arrested, tried, and convicted, allowing Mildred to finally begin her healing process.

Now a national spokeswoman for survivors of domestic violence, Muhammad has captured audiences with her story of perseverance and courage. Her story is poignant not only for fellow survivors of domestic violence, but also for law enforcement agencies, advocates, judges, therapists, and medical professionals. She has been a featured keynote speaker at conferences, meetings, and universities around the country, where she has inspired hope among the victims of abuse and educated others on how to prevent and treat future cases. Muhammad also serves as a consultant with the Office for Victims of Crime and as a board member for various domestic violence organizations.

She has told her story on Larry King Live, Good Morning America with Charlie Gibson, and various documentaries on CNN, Court TV, Investigation Discovery, and BET.

Her book, Scared Silent, was released in October of 2009 by Simon & Schuster to glowing reviews, as thousands have read and identified with her story, and used it as a source of hope and inspiration in their own day-to-day struggles.

Muhammad attended Everest University and received her degree in Criminal Justice.
