On May 16, 2003 Muslim Journal reported that "on Sat., May 10. 2003, New Africa Productions will sponsor the 17th Annual S.A.H.E.E.B. Banquet. The acronym S.A.H.E.E.B. stands for the Struggle to Achieve Human Excellence in Education and Business. The proceeds from this year's fund-raiser will benefit Norfolk's New Africa Theatre Inclusive. This is a project under the direction of Imam W. Deen Mohammed, leader of the American Society of Muslims... the theatre... will be a venue for the whole community... There has been an ongoing effort to acquire and renovate this vacant theatre ever since Imam Mohammed asked Muslims in Norfolk to pursue it."
