Weeksville Heritage Center is an historic site and multidisciplinary museum dedicated to preserving the history of the 19th century African-American community of Weeksville, Brooklyn—one of America’s first free black communities.  As Weeksville considered the value in making the transition from a modest local project to a regionally important cultural institution, TWG was engaged to assist the executive director and board with developing a strategic plan, an operating plan, and a durable fundraising strategy. The organization’s leadership then asked TWG to help create the publicprivate partnership that provided the resources needed to construct Weeksville’s new education and reception center. Weeksville Heritage Center is now Brooklyn’s most prominent cultural institution dedicated to AfricanAmerican history and culture.
