PSG Addition: YES, IT REALLY HAPPENED!

Perhaps Hard To Believe, Yet True Join the Guild for a quick tour of historical oddities:  A Book and A Ship.  A Man With a Penchant For Selling.  A Set of Keys.  And More.  Each tale different.  Each Account Amazing.  Every Story Memorable.  All true stories – Yes, They Really Happened! — that are on the edge of disbelief.

Telltale Presents: _______ Will Save Us

Hey, champ! Thanks for checking out Telltale. We are a monthly curated storytelling event for people that like to get vulnerable and take no shit. We are into genuine connection, laughter, heartbreak, poignant moments, and community building. We are getting ready to close out our fourth season. Yeah, it’s on zoom, which isn’t the same.

I Am My Story: Voices of Hope

The Immigrant Story invites you to visit “I Am My Story: Voices of Hope,” our newest exhibition, opening May 14, 2021, at the Oregon Historical Society. At a moment when our state and the nation are entering a critical period of conversation about the erasure and underrepresentation of people of color, “I Am My Story: Voices of Hope” highlights the experiences of six young women from Africa who have made their homes in Oregon. They are survivors of genocide and war; they have lived through a traumatic break with the past and they face prejudice and injustice in their new home. Their stories offer a window into the struggles experienced by communities of color, worldwide and here in Oregon, and their remarkable resilience and determination.…
