— Sajdah Wendy Muhammad
CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, USA, May 5, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Urban historic preservation is on the rise in urban towns across America. African Americans in the United States preserve their history through the development of house museums. Sajdah Wendy Muhammad, conservationist and real estate developer, is one of the vanguards of this new movement that uses place-based education to tell the stories of everyday African American life.
In partnership with Magnolia Crescent Orchard and Non-Alcoholic Winery, there will be a fundraiser for the Honorable Elijah Muhammad House™ project also known as Sajdah House®, now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The fundraiser will take place at the iconic Silver Room in Hyde Park at 1506 East 53rd Street, Chicago, Illinois, just minutes from this hallowed property.
Atlanta’s Magnolia Crescent Orchards and Non-Alcoholic Winery will be bringing their select non-alcoholic imports to The Silver Room as part of a fundraising initiative for the Honorable Elijah Muhammad House™. Customers can choose from free samples of their non-alcoholic chardonnay, sparkling roses, red and white wines, and sparkling teas, to name a few. All varieties will be available for purchase.
“It is important that we begin to tell our story and highlight our victorious legacy. Too many of our stories are rewritten and redistributed by people who don’t look like us. Our culture now serves as the basis for global pop culture and can be seen around the world. I want to share with the world that we come from a legacy of winners who have survived what many would have deemed impossible. And house museums are a wonderful way to share our culture with the world.
Mrs. Muhammad is the owner and developer of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad House, also known as Sajdah House.®. It is the former home of the Right Honorable Elijah Muhammad at 4847 South Woodlawn Avenue in Chicago, Illinois. Built in 1902, the house is currently being renovated and transformed into a House Museum. You too can be part of this powerful legacy. This iconic renovation and restoration is 80% complete and we are working to raise additional funds to complete the restoration. By helping, you become part of this great legacy. “The finish line is in sight. I’m so proud of this hell of a renovation. I was fortunate to have an incredible team that respects and understands the importance of this historic property. Our partnerships with Brother Anthony and Sister Kareema of Magnolia Crescent Orchard and Non-Alcoholic Winery and with my good friend and brother, Eric Williams, owner of the Silver Room, are a symbol of unity and cooperative economics. This is one of the many partnerships that this company has given birth to.
This sacred property is the most important property in modern African-American history. There are more leaders and icons who visited, dined and met at the home of the Right Honorable Elijah Muhammad and Mother Clara Muhammad from 1952 to 1972 than any other property in our modern history as African Americans.
