On February 18, 2004 The Atlanta Journal-Constitution published a profile on athelete Mujahid El-Amin of W.D. Mohammed High, " a superlative swimmer who happens to be African-American and Muslim and who, with his decision to attend Florida A&M, will eschew some of the top swimming programs to attend a historically black college. The 17-year-old El-Amin was the youngest competitor to qualify for the finals of the USA Swimming Nationals in the 100-meter butterfly over the weekend in Orlando. He placed 17th in 55.12 seconds."
