Event title: White Out? The Future of Racial Diversity in Oregon-RVC
Description: This conversation on racial diversity in Oregon, with Willamette University professor Emily Drew, is free and open to the public. The event seeks to engage students and community members in thoughtful conversation about ideas like racial diversity that impact our lives and state’s future. While 2010 Census data show Oregon’s population becoming more racially diverse, the state remains one of the whitest in the nation. Many Oregonians value racial diversity and the dimension and depth it adds to our lives, yet we remain largely isolated from one another and have yet to fulfill the vision of a racially integrated society. What does the racial integration of place require of us, and how might we prepare to create and meet this opportunity? This program is made possible by the generous support of Oregon Humanities, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Oregon Cultural Trust, and the co-sponsorship of Medford Branch AAUW. The event is sponsored by the RCC Diversity Programming Board.
Date(s) & Time(s): 1/29/2013 from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Campus: Riverside Campus (Medford)
Location: RCC/SOU Higher Education Center Room 127/129
