THE OREGON BLACK PIONEERS RECEIVE HISTORIC PRESERVATION AWARD

The Oregon Black Pioneers<http://www.oregonblackpioneers.org/>, the state's premier organization dedicated to illuminating African Americans' contributions to Oregon's history, is the 2017 recipient of the George McMath Historic Preservation Award. The George McMath Historic Preservation Award honors significant contributions to historic preservation in the state of Oregon.

Since 1993, the Oregon Black Pioneers, an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization based in Salem, has produced publications, mounted exhibitions, presented lectures, sponsored conferences, organized musical and theater productions, delivered classroom presentations and curriculum to public schools, and recognized burial sites for Black pioneers in Salem. Their dedication to shedding light on Oregon's African American pioneers has revealed a rich history that enriches the experience of all Oregonians. You can read more about specific projects that the Oregon Black Pioneers have accomplished by visiting the 2017 McMath webpage<https://hp.uoregon.edu/2017-oregon-black-pioneers>.

There will be an award luncheon May 17, 2017 honoring the Oregon Black Pioneers. Tickets can be purchased here<http://hp.uoregon.edu/mcmath-historic-preservation-award>.
