Our History

     One group, organized by Mrs. Jackson, included Patricia A. Sims, Kattie G. McCullough, Ella W. Robinson, Violet Williams, and Mavis Chambliss. The other group, organized by Dr. Mosley, included Kathy Mosley, Jacqualyn B. Roberts, Theodosia Brown, and Jacquelyn Dedeaux. The two groups merged, selected the name Forward Lookers, and became federated under the mentorship of Mrs. Jackson.

     Like the National Association of Colored Women's Clubs (NACWC), the Forward Lookers Federated Club (FLFC) has a three-fold objective: (1) to help others improve the quality of their lives, (2) to bind together women, young adults, and youth for social, moral, religious, and educational betterment, and (3) to raise to the highest level in the home, moral consciousness and civic life.

     Since 1972, Forward Lookers Federated Club has been blessed with strong leadership and fellowship. Its members have been instrumental in helping local, state, and national projects; supported financially, the renovation of the Club House and the Farm House, both located in Clinton, Mississippi; supported Oakley Youth Development Center (formerly Oakley Training School); assisted with the restoration of the Grace A. Jones Monument; provided a series of test-taking skills workshops for students from the inner city; supported the building of four housing units for the elderly and handicapped located in Clinton, Clarksdale, Grenada, and Hattiesburg, Mississippi, and so much more.
