1619: Centering Black History and Black Futures in Oregon: An Evening with Nikole Hannah-Jones
Friday, May 7, 2021 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM
As we center our work in equity throughout the state, we are pleased to invite you to participate in a discussion with Nikole Hannah-Jones, author of “The 1619 Project” reframing the Black experience in American history.
This discussion, moderated by TV anchor Ken Boddie, will focus on how the inclusion of 1619 historical events into our educational system will further Oregon’s efforts at breaking down systems of oppression.
This event is geared to engage with Oregon educators statewide, with specific emphasis on our shared national history and “Centering Black History and Black Futures in Oregon”.
This event is sponsored by the Oregon Alliance of Black School Educators (ORABSE) and the Oregon Department of Education.
