The Young Negroes' Cooperative League was a federation of cooperatives designed to assist poor black people across the USA that was founded in 1930. Hoping to create an anarchist society by slowly allowing greater economic self-sufficiency, promoting gender and racial equality and giving people experience with participatory democracy. The organization eventually collapsed as many leaders shifted towards conservatism, but many other members remained active in the feminist and black power movements of the 1960s and 1970s.
