UO Alumnus Herman Brame and university historian and archivist Jennifer O'Neal take us on a historical journey of black history at the University of Oregon.
Black History Month is an opportunity to celebrate and recognize the lives, work, and activism of our Black students, past and present. To celebrate what they have done to help us create the community we would like to become. To honor their struggles and their courage. To recognize how they have and continue to help us better address the needs of Black students and the UO, Eugene-Springfield, and Oregon African American communities. To see how their experiences and their commitment help all students gain equitable opportunities and access and pursue academic excellence. And also to celebrate how these students inspire us to continue to work toward creating a more inclusive space for students of the future through the recognition that we are not there yet, but acknowledging and celebrating how we have moved forward.
