Racing to Change, Oregon’s Civil Rights Years
The exhibit, created by Oregon Black Pioneers is being held at the Oregon Historical Society from January 15, 2018- June 24, 2018. The exhibit intends to immerse viewers in the examination of the repression and violence against African Americans that made the Civil Rights Movement necessary.
The exhibit explores how racist attitudes, policies of exclusion, and the destruction of Black-owned neighborhoods shaped Oregon, as well as the unceasing efforts of the Black community to overcome these obstacles.
Aside from the exhibit, public programming is being held monthly, from Portland to Corvallis.
This exhibit would not have been possible without our partnership with the Oregon Historical Society & our Grantors and Sponsors who are listed below.
A heartfelt thanks to all who support our work!
