This will be Oregon State University's fourth annual editathon focused on Black history of the Pacific Northwest. This year we plan to host a simultaneous in-person and remote event. So, things will look a little different than in years past.
Oregon Black Pioneers (OBP) is Oregon’s only historical society dedicated to preserving and presenting the experiences of African Americans statewide. Since 1993, OBP has illuminated the seldom-told history of people of African descent in Oregon. OBP members are inspired by the tenacity of Black Oregonians who have faced discrimination and hardship to make a life for themselves here over the past 400 years. OBPs honor their sacrifices by remembering their stories and by sharing them to the public.
