Summary
From 1994 to 2003, Hugh Price served as president and CEO of the National Urban League. During his tenure, he tripled the League’s endowment, restructured its board of directors and staff; conceived and launched the League’s Campaign for African-American Achievement; established the League’s Institute for Opportunity and Equality, and established its headquarters on Wall Street. Price’s role at the League was just one aspect of his long and impressive life. In This African-American Life, Price traces his family’s forbearers, which include several interesting and historically significant ancestors like Nero Hawley, who fought in the American Revolution and served at Valley Forge under Washington
