History Pub: Eugenics

  • McMenamin's Kennedy School 5736 Northeast 33rd Avenue Portland, OR, 97211 United States (map)

If you haven’t attended one of the McMenamin Brothers’ History Pubs, you’re in for a treat. It’s a great way to learn about Oregon history in a relaxed atmosphere. And, there’s a good chance you’ll need a beer to help you swallow the hard truth about Oregon’s participation in the racial purity movement known as eugenics. Beware: the Oregon State Board of Eugenics survived in one form or another until 1983!

This free event takes place at the Kennedy School Theater, 5736 NE 33rd Av. on Monday, June 25th. Doors open at 6 pm; presentation begins at 7pm.
