Mission Statement

WLCAC was founded during the Civil Rights movement by Ted Watkins, who journeyed alone at 12 to Watts, CA from Meridian, MS during the Great Migration, to escape a lynch mob. Orphaned in segregated 1920’s Los Angeles, Mr. Watkins eventually established WLCAC. During the 1992 Los Angeles Rebellion, our headquarters burned to the ground and we rebuilt: Ted’s daughter Teryl led the creation of our seven acre healing arts oasis that tells the story of racial injustice in the United States and empowers individuals with tools to create change. WLCAC is the definitive family support system for Angeleno’s experiencing poverty, with an unchanging mission to improve the quality of life for residents of Watts and surrounding areas. Working with experts in social services, community development, technology and entertainment, Tim is building platforms for people in Watts to tell our stories and share our culture in a way that drives local economic growth and transforms lives.
