There was a time when Oregon was known as the most discriminatory state north of the Mason-Dixon Line. Until 1926, it was illegal for African Americans to live in Oregon, which was home to more than 70,000 Ku Klux Klan members. “Sundown laws” prevented Asians and African Americans from even staying overnight in many cities.
Come join L&C community members to tour the greater Portland area and learn about historic housing discrimination and how it has shaped the landscape of Oregon, and continues to do so today.
This morning long tour is brought to L&C community members by the Committee on Diversity and Inclusion, the Dean of Students office, Campus Living, and Inclusion & Multicultural Engagement.
Participating in this Bus Tour requires an RSVP by April 5, 2014.
Please Board Bus by 8:15am!
