This 1991 OPB documentary chronicles the little known history of racism in Oregon and the moving story of people, both black and white, who worked for civil rights. Jon Tuttle was a news reporter in Portland for most of his life but said he was unaware of much of this history until late in his career. He set out to document the story but found he was almost too late as some of the important participants had died and others were getting on in age.

Subtle Racism Alive and Well

By RICO Attorney

from Vancouver, WA

Comments about PBS Local Color DVD:

28 July 2015

'Local Color' vividly presents the hard cold realities of racial discrimination in my hometown Portland, Oregon, and various parts of the state. This film should be seen by everyone, especially in schools. The history of racial discrimination [or exclusion] here evolved from violent extremism to subtle, covert benign neglect. Richard Wright's master piece, "The Invisible Man," is more of an appropriate characterization of the treatment of Black Americans in Oregon.
