Black History Month: Kathryn Bogle

“Bogle may be best known for “An American Negro Speaks of Color,” a 2,000-word article she sold to the Oregonian in 1937, which described the realities of being black in Portland. It was the first time the newspaper paid an African American for a story, and Bogle would contribute many more articles to the Oregonian over the years.”

Celebrating Black History Month by sharing some stories throughout the month February—stories of Black Oregonians that weren’t shared with me until far too recently.
