Founded by Reverend Dr. Leon Sullivan in 1964, the OICA (Opportunities Industrialization Centers of America) marked an important milestone after nine years of waiting, writes Valerie Russ for The Philadelphia Inquirer.
In 2013, Mable Ellis Welborn, the chair of the board of the Leon H. Sullivan Charitable Trust, had asked for the Philadelphia International Airport’s International Arrivals Hall to be renamed in the late Sullivan’s honor. Finally, her request was granted just in time for what would have been the reverend’s 100th birthday on Oct. 16.
