About Race Talks: Opportunities for Dialogue
This series deals with race in Oregon, both historically and up to the present time.
Each month, Kennedy School hosts a presentation on a different topic of ethnicity and racial elements in Oregon history, given by educators and/or experts in the topic at hand. The aim is to provide educational and learning experiences that support the development of intercultural sensitivity and racial identity.Map & Directions
