dc.description.abstractMatt Holland's presentation on The DePorres Club was an interracial group of young people who used non-violent methods to confront and change discriminatory policies in stores, factories and businesses who refused to serve minorities.|In the 1940s and 1950s Omaha was sometimes called the “Birmingham of the North” because of the racial discrimination its minority citizens faced. John Marcoe, S.J., a Jesuit priest at Creighton, inspired a group of students to start a club to do something about civil rights – many years before the Civil Rights movement really began. The DePorres Club was an interracial group of young people who used non-violent methods to confront and change discriminatory policies in stores, factories and businesses who refused to serve minorities.en_US
