Harlem CORE chairmen

Description

This is a photo of Harlem CORE chairman Marshall England, dating from the early 1970's. He served as chairman from 1963-1964, and as the Housing Committee chairman under both Gladys Harrington and Clarence Funnye.

As the leader of Harlem CORE, he supported Brooklyn CORE (and Bronx CORE) in their split from National CORE during the 2nd school boycott of 1964 and the World's Fair protests. This decision almost caused Harlem CORE to be thrown out of CORE altogether.
Continuing to work with CORE even after his chairmanship, he also became President of the board of HARYOU-ACT (Harlem Youth Opportunities Unlimited-Associated Community Teams) and the founder and head of LABOR (League of Autonomous Bronx Organizations for Renewal). He was also considered one of the city's most well known health care advocates.
Marshall England passed in 2000.
