While researching the history of Townsend Community Center, Inc., for a post-graduate degree in 2021, a member of our Board of Directors discovered there is no documented history of our organization. This illustrious organization reached a milestone celebrating 100 years of service in 2021!!! While overcoming many obstacles in the form of systemic racism, jim crow, ineffective boards, a pandemic, no longer a building-based agency, & lack of funding. However, the resiliency of this agency by approaching systemic racism head on, challenging the jim crow, a new board of directors, adopted a logo, marketing strategy, more creativity, a program-based agency, & fundraising. We, the Townsend Community Center, Inc. Board of Directors, felt it is our civic duty to document & preserve the narrative of Townsend Community Center, Inc. True history is necessary for growth.
