Why Aren’t There More Black People in Oregon? A Hidden History

  • Cascadia Hall Mary’s Woods, Dunn Community Center 17520 Mesnard Street Lake Oswego, OR, 97034 United States (map)

Community Partner Promotion

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. Author and educator Walidah Imarisha leads participants through an interactive timeline of Black history in Oregon that speaks to the history of race, identity, and power in this state and the nation.

Free Admission

This is a promotion of an event presented by our community partners, West Linn Alliance for Inclusive Community, Respond to Racism, and Mary’s Woods Diversity Task Force
