About: “Opportunity: A Journal of Negro Life” was an academic journal published by the National Urban League and served as a forum for the then-emerging topic of Black Studies. The journal is also celebrated for fostering black literary authorship during the Harlem Renaissance. It was published monthly from 1923 to 1942 and then quarterly through 1949.

The journal's motto "Opportunity not Alms" describes the editorial direction as does the journal's manifesto: "Opportunity is a venture inspired by a long insistent demand, both general and specific, for a journal of Negro life that would devote itself religiously to an interpretation of the social problems of the Negro population.... The policy of Opportunity will be definitely constructive. It will aim to present, objectively, facts of Negro life. It hopes, thru an analysis of these social questions, to provide a basis of understanding; encourage interracial co-operation in the working out of these problems."
