4336 Williams Street Inkster, MI 48141 was the home of Wilfred Little, who is the older brother of Malcolm Little (Malcolm X). In the 1950’s, once released from prison, Malcolm Little was paroled to his brother Wilfred house after receiving letters and writing back and forth with his brother. Malcolm Little came and moved to the city of Inkster, where he worked at Cut Rate Department Store located at 8940 Oakland Ave Inkster, MI 48141.
While in Inkster, this started Malcolm’s rise in the Nation of Islam, which made Malcolm to become one of the greatest Civil Rights Activist until his death in 1965. While living in the City of Inkster, Malcolm X delivered one of his greatest speeches ever “By Any Means Necessary.” In this speech, you will hear Malcolm talking about living in the City of Inkster.
In 2012, Project We Hope Dream and Believe was on the mission to get the home and turn the home into an historical landmark. Our organization took pride in cleaning the home and making sure the grass was cut. After months of meetings with the city, we were denied the home and it was put on the demolition list. As we move forward to November of 2017, Project We Home Dream and Believe was awarded the house.
The mission for Project We Hope Dream and Believe is to educate, empower youth in developing the potential and skills to become productive and confident individuals in a global society.
The plans we have in store for 4336 Williams Street is to restore or to renovate the home, so that we can have the following activities:
We are raising money to help pay for renovation to the Malcolm X House. The bricks will be placed on the driveway and the sidewalk. The house will become a youth center, to teach the youth how to become positive role models in life, and to become productive individuals in a global society.
