Power, Privilege, and Racial Diversity in Oregon Although census data show Oregon’s population becoming more racially diverse, the perception persists that we are one of the whitest states in the nation. Many Oregonians value racial diversity and the dimension and depth it adds to our lives, yet we remain largely isolated from one another and have yet to fulfill the vision of a racially integrated society. Emily Drew is an associate professor of sociology at Willamette University, where she teaches courses about racism, race and ethnicity, immigration, and social change. Her primary areas of research involve understanding how race and racism operate inside of institutions. Drew serves as a co-trainer of Understanding Institutional Racism workshops for Crossroads Anti-Racism Organizing and Training. Oregon HumanitiesThe Marylhurst Speaker Series is hosted by Marylhurst University’s Department of Interdisciplinary and Applied Liberal Arts. This talk is offered through Oregon Humanities’ Conversation Project, free programs that engage community members in thoughtful, challenging conversations about ideas critical to our daily lives and our state’s future.
