About History Pub Monday - All Aboard: Railroading and Portland's Black Community

Content

This month, come out for "All Aboard: Railroading and Portland's Black Community," a presentation by Gwen Carr, Avel Gordly and Charlotte Rutherford. Inspired by the Oregon Black Pioneers exhibit of the same name, this program includes context on how railroad jobs brought African Americans to Portland in the early 20th century.

Join us for beer and history, sponsored by the Oregon Historical Society, Holy Names Heritage Center and McMenamins, in which you'll hear lively local or regional history while you enjoy a frosty pint or two of handcrafted ale.
