Letitia Carson Exhibit Feb. 10 – Apr. 10

Oregon Black Pioneers’ traveling exhibit, Letitia Carson: An Enduring Spirit of Hope and Freedom is on display at Eastern Oregon University through April 10!

This exhibit highlights the history of Letitia Carson, a Black Oregon homesteader, farmer and matriarch living in the time of Oregon’s exclusion laws. The exhibit tells the story of Letitia’s transition from enslaved woman to landowner, and how her persistence and grit carved pathways for Black and Indigenous Oregonians today.
