Rodney Sumler Research Foundation for Economic Empowerment and Environmental Protection

Foundation in honor of the late Rodney Jerome Sumler, it is our mission to continue his work of rewriting negative cultural narratives for people of color through education, research, and development.

Rodney Sumler was a Civil Rights leader who helped maintain diversity of representation in our nation’s capital as the Head Editor of the AC Phoenix News, providing a medium for community members to learn about their representatives.

We are currently in the seed stages to cover projects like digitizing and preserving the AC Phoenix News, the local publication that was instrumental in empowering communities in the North Carolina Piedmont Triad.
