VIDEO: Lansing to get revitalization as old school attended by Malcolm X becomes affordable housing for seniors & veterans

A neighborhood of long-struggling Lansing, Michigan might soon get a dose of revitalization with the redevelopment of the site of a defunct elementary school once attended by Malcolm X.

Christopher Stralkowski had childhood memories on the south side of Lansing that he’ll never forget.

There was roller skating rink over here that my wife and I actually roller skated at when we were in junior high, so it was nice living over here,” he said.

Years later, Stralkowski still finds strong ties to this side of town.

He now works at Ferguson Development, and the company is planning to start a multi-million dollar redevelopment project to the former Pleasant Grove Elementary School.
