About the Event
Special Installation: “The New York Urban League at 100” – January 31 - May 17, 2020
This year marks the centennial of the New York Urban League, a local affiliate of the National Urban League, whose mission is to enable African-Americans and other underserved ethnic communities to secure a first-class education, economic self-reliance, and equal respect of their Civil Rights through programs, services, and advocacy. Among the objects on display in this special installation is a school desk from DeWitt Clinton High School and images depicting the NYUL Football Classic and the Whitney M. Young Scholars. Through events like the Football Classic, the Annual Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) College Fair, and the Young Men’s and Young Women’s Empowerment Days, NYUL has helped challenge New Yorkers to find humanity, connect and help each other, and gain access to equal opportunity.
