About the Event
Join us for a multi-stop history tour. We will begin the day at the Independence Heritage Museum and view the traveling exhibit from the National Library of Medicine, Fire & Freedom: Food and Enslavement in Early America. From there, travel to the Corvallis Museum to explore the exhibit Letitia Carson: An Enduring Spirit of Hope & Freedom. This exhibit was created by Oregon Black Pioneers, as part of the Letitia Carson Legacy Project. Participants will have time to explore both exhibits and have time to visit other parts of each museum.
After visiting the museum, attendees will head to the Reciprocity Garden for a meal and a facilitated conversation about Black foodways and food sovereignty/justice, hosted by Oregon Black Pioneers’ Executive Director Zachary Stocks and Co-Creator of the Reciprocity Garden, Charlotte Epps.
