Carole Robertson Center for Learning
Educating, enriching, and empowering children and families.
The Carole Robertson Center for Learning was named for Carole Robertson, who lost her life in the 1963 church bombing in Birmingham, Alabama, along with three other girls. This tragic event occurred during the Civil Rights movement which galvanized many leaders to work toward more productive and equitable futures for our children. The vision of CRCL is to create a level playing field, giving the children and families they serve a hopeful future, one that Carole Robertson never experienced.
Our task was to create a brandmark that honored the history of this organization while acknowledging the future and progress that has been made since it was founded. The symbol is an abstraction of four children each reading a book. It recognizes the historical legacy that gives the center its name, while conveying a sense of optimism about the future and the progress still to come.
