Reports: Miscellaneous Reports on Interracial and Black Work, 1951-1961. (Box 8, Folder 11)
@ University of Minnesota Libraries
National Board of the Young Men's Christian Associations
DescriptionThis folder contains materials created/collected by the National YMCA as part of their interracial work, including field reports generated by staff members with observations on interracial practices around the country, as well as reports generated or collected by the Commission on Interracial Policies and Program and the Committee on Interracial Advance examining conditions for African Americans and progress towards integration with the YMCA and society in general. Although segregation of YMCAs as a national policy ended in 1946 with the approval of a resolution by the National Council calling for the elimination of all racial discrimination, these changes were accepted and adopted to varying degrees and speeds at the local and national levels. During the next thirty to forty years, a variety of programs and committees were established to monitor and promote the process of integration and the progress of racial equality within the movement, as well as to identify and address the unmet needs of African American and other non-white people served by the organization.
