Throughout Oregon's early history, the presence of African Americans in all parts of the state are recorded in documents and photographs. They came to Oregon as slaves and free in spite of Black Exclusion Laws and worked and lived alongside other pioneers as farmers, blacksmiths, lumbermen, miners, bootblacks, cowboys and mid-wives. Their children went to school, they volunteered for local fire departments and they donated money and land to their communities.
