OMA Lecture at BCHS

The OMA was honored to be invited to the Benton County Historical Society 2019 Lecture Series to give a presentation titled “In Their Own Words: The Oregon African American Railroad Porters Oral History Collection” to an audience of over 50 attendees.

The presentation features the Oregon African American Railroad Porters Oral History Collection, shares the collection backstory and details of the 2015-2016 grant project to make the collection accessible, and showcases some of the interview content within the oral history interviews. The presentation was given by Natalia Fernández, the curator of the Oregon Multicultural Archives and OSU Queer Archives, and associate professor at Oregon State University. She gave a similar presentation in 2017 for the TRIAD Club at OSU; the presentation slides and notes are available online.
