Oregon lawmakers don't make the grade on racial equity

Communities of color are the fastest growing communities in Oregon, more than doubling in size - 21.5 percent of the total population - in the last two decades. But racial disparity continues to run deep despite this change. Many communities of color experience poverty rates two to three times higher than white Oregonians. Although the futue of Oregon's prosperity depends on fair opportunities and economic stabilty for all Oregonians, state lawmakers continue to fall short in dealing with these racial and economic gaps.

Bobby Seale - The Black Panther Party (lecture

In the sixties and seventies, the Black Panther Party captured the imagination of millions in the U.S. and around the world with its iconic black power salutes and revolutionary rhetoric. The organization also attracted the attention of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. J. Edgar Hoover's FBI launched a sustained counterintelligence program to infiltrate, disrupt and destroy the Panthers. The media and popular history have focused on gun-toting Panther militancy and ignored the group's dedication to community organizing and providing much-needed social services. Education and information were key aspects of their work.
