Until 1948, some southern councils of the [[Boy Scouts of America]] (BSA) were racially segregated. Colored Troops, as they were officially known, were given little support from Districts and Councils.   Some Scouting executives and leaders believed that Colored Scouts and Leaders would be less able to live up to the ideals of the Boy Scouts. The National Office began a program of integrating local councils in 1940, which was largely complete in 1948.

Most [[Girl Scouts of the USA]] units were originally segregated by race according to state and local laws and customs. In 1933, [[Josephine Groves Holloway]] founded unofficial African American troops in Tennessee. She also fully desegregated the Cumberland Valley council in 1962.
