Black Oregon Natives and Transplants Dinner (UNCUT)

July 11, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Documentary Film Screening with Bruce Poinsette


Date: July 11, 2023

Time: 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The discourse around Black native Oregonians and transplants is often tense, evoking a history of anti-Black exclusion laws and gentrification, and the frustrations that arise in a small community where everyone knows each other. Are these tensions grounded in reality? Bruce Poinsette brings a group of Black lifelong Oregonians and transplants to the table to talk it out.

Bruce Poinsette is a Portland based writer, host of the YouTube series “The Blacktastic Adventure,” radio host of The Numberz FM, and affiliate of Respond to Racism LO, a grassroots anti-racism organization in Lake Oswego.
