Love Your Neighbor: Oregon's Black Exclusion Laws: How this History Impacts Diversity in Oregon Today

A series of laws discouraged Black Americans from living in Oregon and were in effect for 82 years until 1926 when the last was repealed. Their impact is seen across Oregon today, a state that was 87% white in 2019 according to U.S. census estimates. Join Erika McCalpine, director of the OSU-Cascades Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Laboratory when she hosts a discussion with OSU experts to explore the historical, sociological and personal impact of Oregon’s Black exclusion laws.
