In the summer of 2021, a non-profit organization Project We Hope, Dream, and Believe was awarded a $380,850 federal grant to preserve the former home of American Civil Rights Leader, Malcolm X, in Inkster, Michigan. From July 18-23, 2022, a team from Wayne State University’s Department of Anthropology, led by Dr. Krysta Ryzewski, conducted excavations around the property of the home located at 4336 Williams St. It was recognized by the National Register of Historical Places after being placed on the demolition list for nearly two decades. The home is slated to be transformed into a museum highlighting Malcolm X’s civil rights activism and life in Inkster.

Dr. Tareq A. Ramadan, Adjunct Professor at WSU’s Department of Anthropology and Project Manager at Project We Hope, Dream, and Believe, and Aaron Sims, Founder and Executive Director of Project We Hope, Dream, and Believe will discuss their collective efforts to preserve and renovate Malcolm X’s Inkster home.
