The Winter Chautauqua will explore the African-Americans in the Columbia Basin through lectures and exhibits. A special panel will convene on Saturday at 2:00 pm at the Artillery Barracks to explore ideas of the Vanport Flood, historical timelines of African-Americans in the region, and the Buffalo Soldiers. This is a free event. Please RSVP.

  • Buffalo Soldiers: The importance of the 24th Infantry Regiment Company B at Fort Vancouver.

 

  • 1948 Vanport flood: Oregon Historical Society Interpretive exhibit that left 18,000 homeless and altered race relations in Portland.

 

  • NAACP in the Pacific Northwest: Interviews of local African Americans not only address the World War II era experience but also black social conditions, racial discrimination, and civil rights before and after those years.
