Illuminating Oregon's Early Black History

  • Museum of Natural and Cultural History 1680 E. 15th Ave. Eugene, OR 97403 (map)

Join Gwen Carr of Oregon Black Pioneers at the Museum of Natural and Cultural History for a discussion of Oregon's early Black history. Carr will share stories of Black lives and communities during the 1800s—and explore how they navigated the exclusionary and racist laws that shaped the settling of the region.

You can also take this opportunity to explore the new exhibit Racing to Change: Oregon's Civil Rights Years - The Eugene Story, now on view at the museum.
