Tragedy on the MAX: One Year Later

Race Talks presents an in depth discussion on the state of Portland one year after the tragedy that shook our city. After viewing the A&E series Divided States: Portland which profiled the attack, the audience will hear from TriMet and the police in regards to what they are doing to guarantee the public’s safety, particularly that of People of Color.

About Race Talks: Opportunities for Dialogue

Race Talks: Opportunities for Dialogue

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.

This event is eligible for a History Pub Stamp
