Our Story: Portland Through an African American Lens


Our Story is a celebration of Black life in Oregon. Coming in May 2018, this online collection will have images and interviews featuring the people who make this community special. We hope you can join us for the Our Story Kickoff Celebration on May 19.

If you have lived this history, we want your help. Look for programs this summer that will give us the chance to share your story.

In partnership with: City of Portland Archive & Records Center, Know Your City, Oregon Historical Society, and Vanport Mosaic.
