Repository description (CRHP): The Oral Histories of a number of Malone community members were conducted in 2008 by Tekla Johnson, a native of the community. This was carried out through the Malone History Project via a grant funded by the Nebraska Humanities Council.
Repository description (extant): The Clyde Malone Community Center was founded in 1955 through a reorganization of the Lincoln Urban League (the League). Initially founded during a time in our history when civil rights for African Americans were extremely limited, the League founders, both black and white, were determined to improve social and economic conditions and increase understanding between all races. They believed that enhanced understanding between all groups of people would create a better community. For decades the Malone Center has served neighboring families, youth, seniors and the Lincoln community with inclusive "social, cultural, education, employment and welfare" services.
