It is with both Joy and Pain that you are made aware of the transition of Zenzal Shelman, the second born child and daughter of Cheikh Ahmadou Banba Mbacké, former NABSW National President.


In the presence of family and friends, she joined the Ancestors on Friday, September 4, 2020 in Chandler, Arizona. This is a profound loss to Cheikh and her mother, Marsha Shelman, as well as the immediate and extended family and others who knew and embraced Zenzal throughout the 50 years of joy she brought us.


Please join Cheikh and the African-world community in feeling and sharing the profound personal loss to his family, loved ones, and the collective loss to Afrikan people. May the joy Zenzal brought, and the good she left last forever. May her loved ones be blessed with consolation, courage and peace.


A private ceremony will be held in Chandler. Condolences may be shared with Cheikh at 26464 Summerdale Drive, Southfield, MI 48033 and/or Marsha Shelman at 125 S. Alma School Rd. #1125, Bldg. #43, Chandler, AZ 85224
