ODESSA BROWN - A COMMUNITY VISIONARY

2020 Marks Odessa Brown's 100th Birthday
An inspiring community visionary and mother of four, Odessa Brown dedicated her time to bolstering those in her Central Area neighborhood. She worked tirelessly as a Community Organizer for the Central Area Motivation Program and as a beautician after moving to Seattle in 1963.
She persuaded Seattle Model Cities, a federally-funded anti-poverty agency, to develop a children's clinic to serve the city's Central District. Unknown to many of Ms. Brown's friends and associates, she was silently fighting leukemia during this time. After she passed away at the age of 49 in October 1969, the children's clinic was named in her honor when it opened its doors in 1970.
