A Conversation with Walidah Imarisha

Have you ever wondered why the Black population in Oregon is so small? Oregon has a history not only of Black exclusion and discrimination, but also of a vibrant Black culture that helped sustain many communities throughout the state—a history that is not taught in schools. Join Portland State University author and adjunct professor Walidah Imarisha for this free conversation, organized for the closing week of "Emancipating the Past." This program is made possible by the generous support of the JSMA, the Office of the Vice President for Equity and Inclusion and the Division of Student Affairs at University of Oregon, with additional support from the Eugene Public Library.
