Minutes and reports concerning YWCA of the USA work with African American women and girls, 1915-1931

Scope and Contents

Minutes and reports of YWCA of the U.S.A. committees involved with the organization's work with African American women and girls and issues relating to racism and race relations. Early meetings focus on visitation reports and matters of personnel. By the time the Council on Colored Work of the National Board of the YWCA of the U.S.A. is formed the focus shifts more to discussions of external trends, social and economic problems faced by the African American community and the YWCA of the U.S.A.'s role in work with women of color.
