Abstract:

William Washington Browne was one of the most interesting and accomplished African Americans that most people have never heard of. Browne ran away from slavery in Mississippi during the Civil War and eventually served as a soldier in the US Colored Troops until the end of the war. After the war Browne managed to get some education and became an ordained minister. He returned to the south, first to Alabama and then to Virginia, becoming affiliated with the True Reformers Mutual Aid Society. It was as a leader of the True Reformers where Browne made his mark, helping to expand the organization across most of the south and in to the midwest and mid-atlantic states. Browne became one of Richmond's leading citizens during the 1880's and 1890's, founding the nation's first African American owned and operated bank and building a multi-million dollar mutual aid empire that served thousands of African American True Reformers all over America.
