Racing to Change Feb. 10 – Apr. 10

Racing to Change: Oregon’s Civil Rights Years, Oregon Black Pioneers’ traveling exhibit, is on display at Western Oregon University through April 10!

Racing to Change details the Civil Rights Movement in Oregon during the 1960s and 1970s, a time of cultural and social upheaval, conflict, and change. The exhibit explores how racist attitudes, policies of exclusion, and the destruction of Black-owned neighborhoods shaped Oregon, and how the Black community worked to overcome these obstacles.

If you want to bring this or any of Oregon Black Pioneers’ exhibits to your campus or space, please get in touch!
