Racing to Change chronicles the civil rights movement in Eugene, Oregon, during the 1960s and 1970s—a time of great upheaval, conflict, and celebration as new voices clashed with traditional organizations of power. Co-developed by the Museum of Natural and Cultural History and Oregon Black Pioneers, the exhibit illuminates legacies of racism and the unceasing efforts of Oregon's Black communities to bring about change. 

Through photographs, recorded interviews, and historical archives, Racing to Change explores how racist policies and attitudes created a pressing need for bold civil rights activism in Eugene. Firsthand accounts from movement organizers, former UO students, elected officials, and other members of Oregon's black communities paint a vivid picture of the area's past, and urge us to take part in building a more just future. 

The museum is open Wednesdays through Sundays from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  In accordance with university and state public health mandates, we will require everyone onsite to wear masks or other face coverings and maintain a distance of six feet from anyone outside their households. 

Public hours and safety protocols are subject to change based on guidance from the University of Oregon and the Oregon Health Authority. Please stay tuned to our COVID-19 Updates page for developing information.
