A Series of Impulsive, Threatening and Peculiar Actions
The Omaha DePorres Club's pioneering efforts to challenge racial discrimination and segregation were so unfamiliar for their time that one business owner recalled their behavior as "a series of impulsive, threatening and peculiar actions."
The Omaha DePorres Club worked with and was known by national leaders like Lester Granger and Whitney Young of the Urban League, Roy Wilkins of the NAACP, and George Hauser and Walter Nelson of CORE.
