 Mohammed Bilal Biography

Mohammed Bilal is best known from MTV's Real World III: San Francisco. He is also a diversity consultant, a musician, a poet, and an extraordinary writer who educates audiences about some of today's greatest social problems. As facilitator of over 300 diversity presentations and workshops worldwide, his clients have included Lucent Technologies, Progressive, Boston College, Friends of the Children, and the US Treasury.

Bilal has an MA in Diversity Studies and spent 14 years creating fun, innovative ways to educate people about diversity, AIDS and HIV prevention, drug and alcohol abuse, and responsibility. Bilals positive energy, unmistakable talent, and ethics have made him one of todays leading role models and top diversity consultants. Through his AIDS awareness presentation, he offers solutions on how to better accept the reality of HIV and AIDS. His 12 Steps to Appreciating Diversity has helped thousands to embrace and incorporate social justice and equity into their daily lives.

Midnight Voices, the live instrumentation Hip-Hop band Bilal started with his best friend, Will Power, in 1990, has toured worldwide, and has won numerous awards including two SF Whammies and one Bay Area Music Award for best Hip-Hop group. Bilals first solo album, beatbox metafiction, is already being called groundbreaking for its sensitive lyrics and use of world music.

Bilal has collaborated and/or performed with such luminaries as Santana, The Ohio Players, Michele Shocked, Public Enemy, Ben Harper, De La Soul, Goapele, Martin Luther, and Primus. His music has been featured in the Sundance Award-winning film, Drylongso, and on TV shows such as Moesha and NBCs mini-series Kingpin.

Bilal produced innovative new media as managing editor of 247 Townhall (247townhall.org), a community forum dedicated to creating meaningful change by empowering individuals and communities.

Bilal is also the director of the film, "Towards Excellence," which explores diversity and equity at independent schools. The documentary looks closely at the problematic 80’s, when many private schools intentionally/experimentally increased admittance of African American students to meet self-imposed quotas. Through interviews with some of today’s top administrators, the film offers valuable insights for building vibrant and inclusive school communities. Bilal, who attended and taught at independent schools, unravels power and privilege, race, gender and space.

As the former Executive Director of the African American Art and Culture Complex, one of San Francisco's six cultural centers, Mohammed led a strategic shift toward creative place-making development, leading to a 21% increase in revenue. He also worked as the Design Strategist at Scansion Inc., examining the confluence of equity, art, and innovation.

Bilal is currently the Assistant Dean and Managing Director for Diversity and Inclusion at Stanford University.

Speaking Topics
  • LoveLife: The Disempowerment of AIDS

    How do we disempower HIV/AIDS? This lecture attempts to displace the negative stereotypes and mindsets attached to HIV/AIDS, and replace them with positive archetypes and empowered mindfulness. The main aim is to educate the spirit, to burst through the statistical ritual, and learn, at the most basic level, what HIV/AIDS means and how it lacks any real power to destroy love and happiness. The disempowerment of HIV/AIDS is most important for youth, who are developing (almost daily!) ways to look at themselves and the world. This lecture blends facts, figures, narratives, poetry, and hip-hop story-telling.

  • Preference & Prejudice

    Do you prefer pink or blue, car or bike-
    • black man or white woman? When choosing A over B
    • how do preconceived socio-cultural notions affect our daily choices and what role does prejudice play in our preferences? Preference & Prejudice is a fun, insightful examination of preference and its role in the ways we move toward and away from one another. Using his own personal narrative, Mohammed Bilal blends scholarship, rap and spoken word into a playful exploration of preference and desire, elucidating everyday methods for open interactions.

  • Toward Excellence

    This presentation starts with a viewing of Toward Excellence, a short film that explores diversity and equity at American independent schools. It looks closely at the problematic 80’s, when many private schools intentionally/experimentally increased admittance of African-American students to meet self-imposed quotas. Through interviews with some of today’s top administrators—Al Adams (Lick-Wilmerding High School), Lucinda Lee Katz (Marin Country Day School) and others—the film offers valuable insights for building vibrant and inclusive school communities. Director Mohammed Bilal, who attended, taught and lead independent schools, facilitates the interactive Q & A, vicariously using the film and personal narratives as tools to unravel power and privilege, race, gender and space.
