Hello, I am Ernest Ferrell, President and CEO of the Tallahassee Urban League. Welcome to our website!


In 1969, the Tallahassee Urban League was organized by former Florida A&M University President Dr. Benjamin L. Perry. Dr. Perry and many of his co-founders recognized the need for an agency that could address the many problems, concerns, and inequalities that faced the Black community imparticular, as well as other minorities. In Education, Housing, Criminal Justice, Health Care, and other services.


The agency that they pursued was the National Urban League. The Tallahassee Urban League became officially affiliated with the National Urban League in 1969.
