ABOUT

*PRESS RELEASE*

THE R.R. WILKINSON FOUNDATION, Inc. MISSION

Monday, February 1, 2023

The R.R. Wilkinson Foundation, Inc. formulates on precipice events of 2020, in the aftermath of Black Lives Matter, Black Votes Matter, an unequal justice system, emergence of domestic hate groups; and the revelations from the COVID-19 pandemic exposing  still policing policies for people of color in the United States.  The world watched as the Youth across America protested and took a stand in mass multi-color faces for the kind of nation this generation wishes to really exist while challenging the truth of the U.S. Constitution.

The R.R. Wilkinson Foundation, Inc.  intends to educate, promote, and unveil the detailed Civil Rights movement in Roanoke, Virginia (1959-1968) by young pioneers who worked hard to move the fractions of inequality  forward for the betterment of future generations.  This fight was largely led by Rev. Dr. Raymond Rogers Wilkinson, Pastor of Hill Street Baptist Church and President of the NAACP for the city.  His organizational and demonstrational methods were fiery in nature and necessary for the times.  This foundation seeks to bridge the divide between our past and present via educational lectures with Universities, Colleges, and Public Schools in the State of Virginia, as well as community organizations.  Eventually, the foundation seeks a publication on the works of Rev. Wilkinson for classrooms.

The R.R. Wilkinson Foundation, Inc., burgeons on the dawn of hope for a new tomorrow in the role of a history lesson where we have been, where we are, and where we are going.  The foundation seeks to take the myriad fights of one man to amplify a detailed struggle during a period when integration for civil rights was tumultuous in Virginia history.

HILL STREET BAPTIST CHURCH | Rev. R.R. Wilkinson (rrwilkinson.org)

 

The Hill Street Baptist Church where Rev. Dr. R. R.Wilkinson pastored for 33 years would like to thank the City Council of Roanoke, Virginia for approving the resolution in renaming the former Carver Avenue in northwest Roanoke to R. R. Wilkinson Avenue on Monday, March 20, 2023. Nearly 100 years after Rev. Wilkinson was born and 60 plus years after he fought for equal rights in the City of Roanoke. This recognition is long overdue.

​The Hill Street Baptist Church and Wilkinson Families look forward to the unveiling date and what a grand celebration it will be.
