[Michigan, Feb. 7, 2022]: In the spirit of celebrating Black History Month, we remember the Black American greats. “The Greatest,” Muhammad Ali, is one of them.
Black history Month presents an opportunity to educate as well as opportunities to act. The Islamic Center of Detroit (ICD) that falls in District 7 at the Detroit-Dearborn border hopes to be able to renovate and remodel the Belton Mark Twain Park and rename it Muhammad Ali Park.
This park is a city of Detroit Park that the ICD has adopted and generated funds to improve it and make it a state-of-the-art family park that all residents in Detroit and Dearborn can enjoy.
The plan for the park is to improve it and add children’s playground, a basketball court, a running and walking track, a soccer field as well as a picnic area. The new design is to make the park safe, pleasant, and a family-oriented park open to all in the nearby neighborhoods.
The ICD will work closely with the authorities to keep the park well maintained so residents can enjoy it.
For more information and details regarding the anticipated project, please contact the ICD at 313 584 4143. The ICD is hopeful that this project will be completed by the upcoming summer so residents can enjoy it this summer.
The American Human Rights Council (AHRC-USA) urges all citizens to help advance this worthy project that will improve the quality of life of all the residents of the area.
The ICD lunched a public campaign urging the public, especially residents of District 7 and neighbors, to sign a petition to rename the park as “Muhammad Ali Park.”
Visit TINYURL.COM/MR3EMX9F or call the district 7 at 313 236 3540 to show support for the project.
