Words cannot describe the grief and devastation from the tragic loss of Mohamed.   His family across the US and Guinea are in complete shock.  Mohamed was killed by gunshot at a party in Oakland, CA on Dec 1, 2018.  He was just 18 years old.

Please join us in supporting Mohamed's family at this time of need.  

Mohamed Soumah is the son of Yamoussa Soumah and Mariama Bangoura, of Guinea West Africa; Yamoussa was the artistic director for Ballet Merveilles, training many of the artists from Guinea now in the US including Alseny Soumah, Naby Bangoura.  Mohamed was born in Florida and grew up in Berkeley.  He had just graduated high school and loved competitive soccer.  

Mohamed is loved by many and will be deeply missed.

Thanks to everyone for their support and patience as the burial details for Mohamed Soumah were planned.

There will be three parts to the services, starting today, and we would like everyone to feel invited to attend any of them that are meaningful to them. We appreciate any help spreading the word to anyone who may wish to attend, Thank you!

1) Friday Dec 7, 2018: Muslim prayers at the Islamic Center of Oakland, 515 31st St, Oakland. Everyone should be dressed very modestly with arms and legs completely covered, and men and women will be in different rooms for traditional Friday prayers. 12:30-1:30pm

2) Friday Dec 7, 2018: Muslim burial at Five Pillars Farm: 1761 Laughlin Road, Livermore. Arrive by 2:30pm for burial. We were warned there would be traffic. Do not park on the main highway or you may receive a ticket, pull into the cemetery and look for parking.

Both of the Muslim services will be very traditional and religious, it sounds like it will just be traditional prayers and no one will speak personally about Mohamed. Everyone should be dressed modestly for prayers. No flowers, candles, photos, or anything else are allowed at the grave in the Muslim tradition.

3) Saturday Dec 8, 2018: Memorial 2-6pm. The Malonga Center for the Arts, 1428 Alice Street, third floor, downtown Oakland. An uncle will bring a microphone, everyone is welcome to drop in any time and share memories about Mohamed. This will not be a religious event and anyone is welcome to bring stories or food to share.

Many thanks from everyone for all your support!
