Moment In Hstory: Whitney Moore Young Jr.

posted by Stichiz - 

#BlackHistory Whitney Moore Young Jr. was an American civil rights leader. He spent most of his career working to end employment discrimination in the United States and turning the National Urban League from a relatively passive civil rights organization into one that aggressively worked for equitable access to socioeconomic opportunity for the historically disenfranchised.Whitney Young's legacy, as President Nixon stated in his eulogy, was that "he knew how to accomplish what other people were merely for". Young's work was instrumental in breaking down the barriers of segregation and inequality that held back African Americans. #UnsungHero #BlackHistoryMonth
