Creativity, resourcefulness and a strong vision of equality in America helped Black men and women to establish their own organizations despite the continuing legacy and stigma of the slavery period. Frontiers International, the oldest Black community service organization in the U.S., was born in the heart of the Depression and called together Black men concerned about the condition of Blacks in America. Despite racial and religious turbulence during the 1930's, the Frontiers managed to maintain a posture of service to the deprived and needy in the minority community. Advancement Through Service constitutes the first history of this public service effort on the part of Blacks in the U.S. Contents: Nimrod B. Allen; Harold L. Pilgrim; Years of Growth; The Constitution and By-Laws; Frontiers and Vitiligo; Women's Auxiliary: The Yokettes; A Fish in the Sea; Africa and America; Service: A Community Challenge.
