Racism in Oregon History

A Brief Overview

$30 for MBA members | $50 non-members

In December 2019, the Oregon Historical Society (OHS) published a special issue of its 120-year-old journal, the Oregon Historical Quarterly, on the subject of “White Supremacy & Resistance.” The issue offers an in-depth view of the ways Oregon history has been shaped by White supremacist ideology and policies - and resistance to those frameworks - for almost two centuries. The special issue joins many other OHS projects that engage Oregonians in the complex and diverse history of our state. Understanding how both racism and justice are at the heart of Oregon’s history are crucial to our ability to build a better future. In this presentation, OHS Boyle Family Executive Director Kerry Tymchuk and OHQ Editor Eliza Canty-Jones offer an overview of the importance of these subjects and invite attendees to access OHS resources for more learning.
