The Whitney Project is named after U.S. civil rights leader, Whitney M. Young, Jr. who
spearheaded the drive for equal opportunity for blacks in U.S. industry and government
service during his 10 years as head of the National Urban League (1961–71) one of the
world’s largest social-civil rights organizations. Mr. Young was an effective and powerful
advocate. His advocacy of a “Domestic Marshall Plan”—massive funds to help solve
America’s racial problems—was felt to have strongly influenced federal poverty
programs sponsored by Democratic and Republican administrations in Washington.
