A Century of Service

From Humble Beginnings

Originally established as Phyllis Wheatley Settlement House, PWCC has been serving the Black and BIPOC community of Minneapolis since October 17th, 1924.
 

Now after nearly 100 years, the Phyllis Wheatley Community Center is still serving North Minneapolis residents through community-based programming, education, and events that uplift the community, fulfill our mission, and pave the way for our vision — of a world where everyone, regardless of background, has access to quality education, equitable opportunities, and the tools to reach their full potential. We are committed to building a society where diversity is celebrated, individuals are empowered, and every voice is heard and respected — can be realized.
