We share an incredible history of tragedy and triumph - from the tragic Tuskegee Syphilis Study to the heroic Tuskegee Airmen, inspirational stories of Native, European and African American history are presented in museum exhibits and programs.  Featuring decades of documented history of non-violent action, Tuskegee, Alabama is one of America's best kept civil rights secrets.  The Center presents Tuskegee and Macon County, Alabama's influence on cultural, political, legal, and social aspects of American life - past and present.  

Here are excerpts from a letter from a supporter to her family:  

The Center depends on government and private funding to operate.  In recent years, contributions have declined and The Center needs our support.  You may ask why you should consider giving a donation and I would like to offer my own personal reasons for putting my donation in the mail first thing this morning.

From the first time I visited The Center, I have received generous support of my efforts to research my family tree and the history of Creek Stand.  Deborah Gray, Managing Director and Thomas (T.C.) Coley, Executive Director, have provided information, guidance and suggestions for many endeavors related to Creek Stand.  For example, the success of the Ellison Family Heritage Reunion tour in 2009 was due in part, to their valuable input on activities and logistics.  The  heritage tour during the Ellison reunion included a visit to The Center, where we were warmly welcomed and hosted.  In October of 2010, Ms. Gray traveled to Columbus (Georgia) to attend the appreciation dinner for Creek Stand supporters.  The receipt of grant funding from the Alabama Historic Commission for the Creek Stand Archaeology Project probably would not be a reality had it not been for the nudging I received from Ms. Gray and Mr. Coley to apply for the grant.  While encouraging me to apply, they also offered insight and ideas that inspired the grant proposal.  The Center also supported the May 29, 2011 Creek Stand cemetery historic marker dedication.  Mr. Coley was the guest speaker for the dedication service.

In addition to The Center's friendship, mentoring and support of Creek Stand historic preservation efforts, The Center positively impacts cultural tourism in Macon County.   Sustained tourism is critical to the County's economic growth and development.  One day when I visited The Center, a woman came in seeking information about the location of a historic school.  She left happy because she learned the school was a Rosenwald School and she learned where the school had been located.  I understood how she felt because I have felt the same elation while visiting The Center and learning more about how to conduct my research and projects.

For these reasons, I am asking for your financial and prayerful support of The Center.  As we witnessed with the fundraiser for the Creek Stand cemetery historic marker, no donation is too small to make a difference and prayer changes things...Do what you can to support The Center.
