Since 1993, Oregon Black Pioneers has expanded the awareness of Oregon's African American heritage by revealing the larger stories behind scant historical references. OBP Executive Director Zachary Stocks shares some of the organization's key accomplishments, some of the Black people left out of mainstream "pioneer" narratives, and what OBP is working on currently in spring 2021.
This presentation, part of the Black Bag Speakers Series at Portland State University, is sponsored by the PSU Department of Black Studies. Zachary Stocks is introduced by Walidah Imarisha, Black Studies faculty and Director for the Center for Black Studies at PSU.
