The Oregon Historical Society is excited to unveil History Hub<https://t.e2ma.net/click/brybj/jtxycc/ngu2wd>, a new permanent exhibition where youth, students, and families can explore the topic of diversity through fun, hands-on interactives, objects, and pictures. Developed in partnership with an advisory committee of students, teachers, cultural organizations, and museums, History Hub tells the stories of people who live in Oregon, today and in the past. The content of History Hub spans grades K-12 with a focus on 4th - 8th grades.

With puzzles, touch screen activities, and board games, History Hub asks students to consider questions like "Who is an Oregonian?," "How has discrimination and segregation affected people who live in Oregon?," and "How can you make Oregon a great place for everyone?" While the topic of diversity is central to History Hub, the content will change every three years and OHS will partner with cultural organizations and museums across Oregon to share their stories in History Hub. From 2016 to 2019 our partners for History Hub are the Oregon Black Pioneers<https://t.e2ma.net/click/brybj/jtxycc/38u2wd>, Portland Public Schools Indian Education Program<https://t.e2ma.net/click/brybj/jtxycc/j1v2wd>, and the Southern Oregon Historical Society<https://t.e2ma.net/click/brybj/jtxycc/ztw2wd>.

There will be a public opening celebration on Nov. 6, 12pm-4pm. Visit www.ohs.org<http://www.ohs.org> for more information.
