Chick Webb Memorial Recreation Center located in Baltimore, Maryland in 1947 was built with fund raising of African American entertainers and black benevolent groups for Negro youth after an appeal to the City of Baltimore and the YMCA ‘s inability to fund a youth center for Negro Youth. As a death wish of William”Chick” Webb to provide a Center, Dr. Ralph Jonathan Young” organized a Recreation Committee to raise the funds to acquire land and construct the Center. Located in a transformational community, we wish for the center to have a competitive aquatics and wellness center to accommodate current residents and the projected new residents, a health, wellness and recreational center; and space for community meetings and entertainment to include recognition of the fundraising artist: Ella Fitzgerald, Cab Calloway, Ink Spots, Nicolas Brothers, Duke and Mercer Ellington, Jackie “ Moms” Mabley and others.
