Program planned for Black History Month

Posted: Wednesday, Feb 13th, 2013

Walidah Imarisha

Ever wonder why the Black population in Oregon is so small? Oregon has an uneven history that includes Black exclusion and discrimination and, at the same time, a vibrant Black culture that helped sustain many communities throughout the state – a history that is not taught in schools.

This is the focus of “Why Aren’t There More Black People in Oregon? A Hidden History,” a free conversation with Portland State University author and adjunct professor Walidah Imarisha in celebration of Black History Month. The program will be at 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 23, in the Carriage House of the Lincoln County Historical Society, 545 SW Ninth St. in Newport. This program is hosted by the historical society and sponsored by Oregon Humanities.
