Greater Cincinnati Urban League

Dr. Eric R. Jackson, Greater Cincinnati Urban League

Founded in 1948 the Greater Cincinnati Urban League was established as an independent social service agency dedicated to improving economic opportunities for African American residents throughout the tri-State area (Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky). The city's first black Mayor, Ted Berry, and first black City Solicitor, Judge William McClain, were early trustees of the group. In general, the Urban League efforts have been concentrated on five areas: job training, job placement, health and wellness, youth development and leadership, and community advocacy.
