Chandra picked up me and Debbie to visit a community named Tillery at 9:00. We arrive at nearly 11:00 and took a visit to the museum of Concerned Citizens of Tillery(short CCT). The leader told us CCT empowered the community that builds on their natural, historic and cultural resources to promote economic independence, a healthy and environmentally sound life, the development of heritage and agricultural tourism that honors and celebrates the spirit and fortitude of Tillery and an enhanced quality of life through their own outside participation in conferences, retreats, seminars and other educational activities. CCT has been a catalyst for positive social change not only in the Tillery Community and Halifax County, but across the state, nation and the world.  While the issues that CCT addresses start with what is confronting the Tillery community, the struggles do not stop at the community boundaries of Tillery, in fact CCT members pursue justice and help others across the nation and world.  This has made CCT a national and international leader in a variety of areas, from justice for Black farmers, to health care, to environmental justice.   In all of these fields, CCT has served as a catalyst, leading others to achieve great milestones. It has always been centrally focused on improving the lives of Tillery residents, through many ways,such as offered Adult Basic Education classes. In fact it has had an active role in education, besides helping its members get an education, it has been an ardent advocate for quality education in Halifax County.  In areas other than education,it has always been a leader in Halifax County and North Carolina.They led to the establishment of the Tillery Volunteer Fire Department and District. Today CCT has accomplished many of its goals since its creation in 1978. CCT has successfully seated grassroots folk on county boards including the Council on Aging, the Health Department, School Board, and other programs including Smart Start. CCT drafted and implemented the first Intensive Livestock Ordinance in North Carolina, copied by many other counties, and also created a model for health care in partnerships with universities that also was used in five other communities. The leader show the  “potato curing house”,used to conserve potato now to “conserve people”.It is a clinic in which sick person can be diagnosed by doctor far away through the sensors.It is convenient and helpful for local people because the hospital is far from here.Today is the gathering day and many people get together and do speech and singing and praying.It really open and guileless people who persist in their own right.
