Oregon Black History: 450 Years in 45 Minutes 2/3
Zachary Stocks, Executive Director of Oregon Black Pioneers.
Oregon Black Pioneers is Oregon’s only historical society dedicated to preserving and presenting the experiences of African Americans statewide. Since 1993, our organization has illuminated the seldom-told history of people of African descent in Oregon. We are inspired by the tenacity of Black Oregonians who have faced discrimination and hardship to make a life for themselves here over the past 400 years. We honor their sacrifices by remembering their stories and by sharing them to the public.
OBP's vision is to become the preeminent resource for the study of Oregon’s African American history and culture. We work to achieve this vision through our illuminating exhibitions, our public programs, our original publications, and historical research. Additionally, we partner with local organizations to plan, interpret, and advocate for the preservation and commemoration of sites with African American historical significance.
