Why Aren’t There More Black People in Oregon? A Hidden History, Oregon Humanities Conversation project program

Saturday, June 28, 2014

Have you ever wondered why the Black population in Oregon is so small? Oregon has a history not only of Black exclusion and discrimination, but also of a vibrant Black culture that helped sustain many communities throughout the state—a history that is not taught in schools. This is the focus of “Why Aren’t There More Black People in Oregon? A Hidden History,” a free conversation with Portland State University author and adjunct professor Walidah Imarisha. This program is hosted by the Beaverton Library Foundation and sponsored by Oregon Humanities. Free and open to the public. No registration required.
