The Links, Incorporated, founded in 1946, is one of the oldest and largest volunteer service organizations of women who are committed to enriching, sustaining and ensuring the culture and economic survival of African Americans and other persons of African ancestry. The members of The Links, Incorporated are influential decision makers and opinion leaders and distinguished women who are individual achievers and have made a difference in their communities and the world.
In the summer of 1984, Shirley Lewis Breda facilitated the first meeting of a group of professional women. Others supportive and instrumental in this endeavor were Arminta Bolden, Adrianne King, and Lois H. St. Amant. The purpose of the first meeting was to brainstorm and discuss the possibility of establishing a new Links chapter in the Baton Rouge area. The idea was met with great enthusiasm.

Thirteen women shared that vision and established the organization’s sixth club in eastern North Carolina on April 18, 1948. The Wilson-Rocky Mount-Tarboro Club was the first in what is now known as the Southern Area. Like their predecessors, the women focused their efforts on programs related to education and improving the lives of African Americans in their community.
