The Pittock Mansion, 3229 N.W. Pittock Dr., Portland, is offering a new exhibit from July 19 through Nov. 13, “Black in Oregon: 1840-1870.” The Oregon Black Pioneers’ travelling exhibition highlights some of the Black individuals and families who came to Oregon during the years of legalized racial exclusion, when the provisional and territorial governments of Oregon explicitly barred Blacks from residency and all legal protections. These Black pioneers risked everything to build a better life for themselves and their families in Oregon and helped lay the foundation for the state’s future Black communities.

Admission is $14.50 per person. Tickets are available to purchase at pittockmansion.org. Pittock Mansion participates in the Arts for All program. Visitors who receive food stamps through SNAP and have an Oregon Trail Card can buy up to 2 admission tickets for $5 each. Present your Oregon Trail Card at admissions at the time of purchase.
