Name: Black Pioneers in Oregon with Historian Gwen Carr
Date: February 25, 2017
Time: 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM PST
Event Description:

This presentation tells stories of the little-known Black Pioneers who lived across the state from as early as 1788. Some were brought to Oregon as slaves and some free men and women. In spite of harsh Black Exclusion laws they lived and thrived in Oregon as explorers, cowboys, entrepreneurs, loggers, railway and shipyard workers, and community members.

Gwen works with Oregon Black Pioneers – a state wide organization with the mission of doing historical research and honoring the lives of African Americans who have contributed to the historical development of Oregon.
