Historical NoteReturn to Top

The Urban League of Portland was established in 1945 as an affiliate of the National Urban League. It is a non-profit, community-based organization whose mission has been to "enable African Americans to secure economic self-reliance, parity and power, and civil rights". The League has emphasized educational opportunity for African Americans and other youth, advocated for fair housing laws, and offered employment assistance.

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

The Urban League of Portland Records consist of records generated by the League and its board, officers, staff, and affiliated organizations. The records document the administration of the organization and reflect the League's outreach to the community through various programs and activities, fund-raising, interaction with the National Urban League, and African American life in Portland. The subject files constitute the bulk of these materials and include information regarding housing, history of the League, minorities in business, urban renewal programs, various events and programs, education, and different League centers and services. The reports include annual and presidential reports as well as reports on race relations in Portland, African American children in Portland, and Northeast Portland neighborhood revitalization. The publications include League newsletters, brochures, and reports on various topics from the National Urban League office and branches in other cities. The records include constitutions and bylaws, committee information, correspondence, financial statements, surveys, event materials and press releases, meeting minutes, newspaper clippings, photograph albums, photographs, posters, scrapbooks, sound recordings, videotapes, award plaques, and a building plaque.

The photographs include prints, negatives, slides, and digital photographs and are only minimally arranged and described. The images, which date from the 1940s to 2005, depict League meetings, League representatives meeting with Oregon politicians, community events, League directors and board members, and League staff at National Urban League conferences. The images also document League outreach events such as job fairs, activities at the Multicultural Senior Center, programs at Okley Green Middle School, and fields trips for students to Willamette University and other locations. Many of the photographs are arranged chronologically.

The videotapes and sound recordings primarily document League events such as conference presentations, annual dinners, workshops, and award ceremonies in the 1990s, with a few recordings made in the 1980s. The sound recordings also include public service announcements and broadcasts of radio programs.
