Oregon's Black History: 450 Years in 45 Min

1131 Broadway, Seaside OR 97138

Friends of Seaside Public Library welcome Zachary Stocks, public historian and Executive Director of Oregon Black Pioneers. Stocks will trace the history of people of African descent who have lived and worked in Oregon since before the founding of the earliest English-speaking settlements in the Americas. This presentation will bring new light to the historic legal and social marginalization of African Americans in Oregon.

This event was made possible by a grant from Oregon Humanities. The event will be held in the Community Room of the Seaside Public Library.

Zachary Stocks previously served as Program Director of Historical Seaport and Visitor Services Manager of Northwest African American Museum. He is currently a seasonal Ranger at Lewis & Clark National Historical Park. He holds a BA in History from the College of William & Mary. He lives in Astoria.
