This week, I am honored to be producing the Carole Robertson Center for Learning Celebration & Fundraiser – this annual event recognizes the volunteer organizations that help support CRCL and helps to raise funds for this essential organization.

The Carole Robertson Center for Learning is named in memory of Carole Robertson, Addie Mae Collins, Cynthia Wesley, and Denise McNair — the four girls who were tragically killed in the 1963 16th Street Baptist Church bombing in Birmingham, Alabama during the Civil Rights Movement.

The Center’s mission is dedicated to nurturing, supporting, and strengthening family life through quality child, youth, and family development programs. It serves Chicago families and facilitates community advocacy on child and family issues. 

Simply put, the Carole Robertson Center provides a day-care opportunity for Chicago’s underprivileged south and west-side families who need a place for their children to go between 6 am and 6 pm. Without this Center, over 700 children may not have a safe place to stay, a warm meal to eat, or loving arms to hold them.

The Carole Robertson Center understands the need to nurture the very young to make them better students and individuals later in life.  It provides an opportunity for a bright future to kids who might otherwise not have a chance.
