The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Nonprofit Organizations of Color in Minnesota: An Overview and Directory.

Smith, Frederick W.

Out of the 2,800 nonprofit organizations registered in Minnesota, 152 are organizations of color. They are controlled by persons of color and/or primarily serve persons of color. This 1991 directory lists the organization by group: Asian/Pacific Islander, African American/African, American Indian, Hispanic, and multi-cultural. Address, phone number, name of the director, and a two or three word description of the organization are included. The directory does not include all the organizations that serve people of color. Many religious organizations, for example, are not included. A thirteen-page overview provides a picture of these organizations as a whole: who they are, where they are, how old and how large they are, who guides them, how they operate, what they do, and where they get their money. Mailing label matrices are provided for each community of color.
