Local Color: Oregon’s Forgotten History of Racism & Civil Rights
This one-hour OPB documentary chronicles the little-known history of racism in Oregon and the moving story of people who worked for civil rights. First released in 1990, when memories of 'White Trade Only' signs had been forgotten, 'Local Color' found the people who still remembered that era and documented their firsthand accounts.

Something new! FILC Zoom Baking
Learn to make Peasant Bread, 7/19 at noon
There's no experience necessary to join our first Zoom-based baking experience. We'll learn to make Peasant Bread -- the easiest bread you will ever bake! We’ll spend about 15 minutes together, take an hour break to let the dough rise and then another 15 minutes together to get it ready for the oven. In order to prepare for this baking activity, gather the following ingredients: all-purpose flour (unbleached), kosher salt, sugar, quick rise yeast, and butter (salted or unsalted). You will also need two 1 to 1 1/2 quart oven-proof glass mixing bowls (available on Amazon) or small (8.5 x 4.5”) loaf pans. The Pyrex glass mixing bowls work best.
