A Seat at the Table: Experiences of Black Portlanders

  • Lewis & Clark College 0615 Southwest Palatine Hill Road Portland, OR, 97219 United States (map)
A symposium on home and belonging in Portland must address Black lives and experiences in the “whitest city in America.” This panel explores how Black communities have transformed in relation to the white population and other people of color in the city. Where are spaces of intimacy and kinship for Black Portlanders? How are Black Portlanders rewriting and amplifying their narratives?
