Where is Oregon Black Pioneers?

Oregon Black Pioneers is so much more than online history exhibits and digital projects. We offer talks, events, walking tours, presentations and living history opportunities all across the state. Chances are, we will be speaking somewhere near you soon! Take a look at our schedule of public programs below to see where you can catch an OBP presentation in person.

Interested in booking us for a private tour, to speak at your event, or hire us to support your next exhibit or research project? We’d love to bring Oregon’s Black history to you! Click here for details.
