Lyllye Reynolds-Parker Black Cultural Center
Purpose and Racing to Change

Parking is available in all UO faculty and staff lots, as well as the Columbia Garage.

The Lyllye Reynolds-Parker Black Cultural Center will serve as a place of scholarship and as a cultural and social hub.  It will connect Black students with resources for student success and leadership, as well as serve as a site for seminars and programs that serve the UO and all of Oregon.


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.
