About the Black Bag Speaker Series:  In an effort to develop a forum for people and organizations doing work that addresses issues related to the community of Black people in Portland, the Black Bag Speaker Series began in October of 2006. We have featured many key people and organizations speaking on important issues in Portland, including but not limited to former Oregon Senator Avel Gordly, Joann Hardesty from Oregon Action, and Dr. Joy Leary from PSU. Our series has focused on the following issues: race and sustainability, slavery, police violence, segregation and gentrification, education, the Black Panthers, & AIDS and health in Portland - to name but a few.
