About Race Talks: Opportunities for Dialogue

Race Talks: Opportunities for Dialogue

(Please note: This event is not eligible for the "Attend a History Pub" Passport experience stamp.)

This series deals with race in Oregon, both historically and up to the present time, to provide learning experiences that support the development of racial identity and sensitivity.

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.
