Student Activists: Civil Rights Histories of Oregon’s Universities and Colleges

The event “Student Activists: The Civil Rights Histories of Oregon’s Universities and Colleges” was an opportunity for attendees to learn what was happening during the Civil Rights Movement on Oregon’s college campuses – including PSU, Lewis & Clark College, Pacific University, OSU, and the UO – and how student activism during the 1960s and 1970s helped shaped what higher education is for students today.

The event was presented by the Oregon Black Pioneers (OBP) in collaboration with the OSU Libraries and Press.

  • Hannah Leah Crummé, The Watzek Library at Lewis and Clark College in Portland.
