Announcements & Events
The department is the oldest Black Studies program in the Pacific Northwest and the only program in the state of Oregon that offers a degree in Black Studies; over the years great friendships have been established with other community-based services.
In accordance with different organizations around PSU's campus and Portland such as REAP, Inc. and the Urban League of Portland, PSU's Multicultural Center (MCC) as well as student groups such as the Black Cultural Affairs Board (BCAB), Association of African Students (AAS), and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People Portland State chapter (NAACP), the Black Studies Department at PSU works to serve its community.
Departmental objectives are to provide comprehensive learning programs, community-based learning and service, and an overall heightened sense of awareness about general multicultural, diversity, and gender issues covering the African, Caribbean and African-American experiences. This page is dedicated to providing its viewers with a list of announcements and events either hosted and/or co-sponosred by the Black Studies Department or its affiliates.
