1925 Business Guide, Colored Commercial Club of Omaha, Nebraska
The Omaha Colored Commercial Club was formed in 1920 to aid African Americans in finding employment and learning which businesses to support. It was important for the community to know which businesses were black-owned or willing to hire employees from the black community so that they could support positive businesses. Later on, other North Omaha organizations, including the Omaha Urban League (established in 1928) and The Omaha Star (a newspaper established by Mildred Brown in 1938) and would assist African Americans in learning which businesses to work for and patronize.
