He published More Than A Bus Ride Curriculum Guide to assist teachers help students understand the deeper underlying forces that the seat on the bus symbolically represented, to motivate young people to take active roles in their local communities to "ensure the blessings of liberty and freedom for generations yet unborn" and herald the untold contributions of those brave and courageous women and men that have been largely ignored and credited to others in history books and classrooms. Prior to his work in film/documentary, Mr. Waheed worked in the field of Community Economic Development. He developed youth intervention programs and organizations, senior citizen support programs, small business development projects, housing development strategies, and overall neighborhood revitalization strategies. Mr. Waheed is a freelance journalist for a statewide weekly newspaper and a consultant to Alabama State University's Drop Out Prevention Program
His first feature documentary was on the struggle of neighborhood residents surrounding an urban university to create a partnership of business, government, and education organizations to revitalize their neighborhood.
In 2002 he hosted and produced a weekly social commentary news television show, "Let's Talk About It". His media, community development skills and experiences were used to inform and educate community residents on methods to help improve their lives.
