Despite Oregon’s progressive and forward-thinking reputation, our history tells another story – indeed, many refer to Oregon as the South of the North, as we have historically embraced segregation, exclusion and displacement. Now, the disparities between BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) communities of color and white people are extreme. Participants in this course will spend five weeks delving into our state’s history and our current realities.

We will collectively build an understanding of how Oregon’s whiteness, historically and today, has functioned, an understanding that will help us move forward to develop a better future for us all.
