The goal of the organization was to fund programs and services that encouraged black economic, community and educational development. Interviewees address this alliance and discuss many other topics including social services, racial discrimination, Black Panthers, race relations, African American education, and the civil rights movement. There is an interview that deals with African American life in Texas as well as one of Rev. John Jackson, a major civil rights figure in Portland.
