Before Portland, Jacksonville was the heart of Oregon’s Black community. But despite a 150 year presence in the area, the contributions of Blacks in Southern Oregon are seldom told. Zachary Stocks of Oregon Black Pioneers will highlight some of the region’s early Black residents, their work and the racism they encountered.
