Uncovering Difficult Truths

“Uncovering Difficult Truths” is a conversation between Oregon author Sarah L. Sanderson, Taylor Stewart, founder of the Oregon Remembrance Project, and host Tara Houston, Community and Engagement Manager, Oregon Shakespeare Festival (OSF).

Sarah Sanderson, author of The Place We Make: Breaking the Legacy of Legalized Hate, will share her own story of discovering that her ancestors participated in exiling Jacob Vanderpool from Oregon City in 1851 under the exclusion laws that prevented Black people from residing in Oregon. Taylor and Sarah will explore what we might gain from uncovering difficult truths, including difficult truths about what has happened in the past and how we might transform those challenges into opportunities for a new kind of future.

“When we insist on colorblindness, it is our own sin to which we become most blind.”
