Who We Are  

The Quinn Research Center is the concept of Carolyne and Bill Edwards as a tribute to the legacy of Dr. Alfred T. Quinn, a prominent Black educator, community leader and icon of the Santa Monica Bay Area in the mid to late 20th century. As his niece, Carolyne wants to preserve and share the contributions and achievements of a man dedicated to education and the advancement of every individual. She also wants the QRC to be a place of inspiration and empowerment for future generations.

Our Mission  

The Mission Statement of the Quinn Research Center is to empower community members by being an educational resource that promotes the study and research of Black Family History and Culture in the Santa Monica Bay Area.
