Andrea Morgan's Black Like Me 360 Project Launches
Funded in 2022 by a Racial Equity & Inclusion Grant, Behavioral & Systems Neuroscience student Andrea Morgan’s project Black Like Me 360: A Virtual Experience aims to show what it's like to be Black in America. The project features “360 degree videos with the tables at OHSU turned completely—instead of a primarily white institution, showing OHSU as though it’s a primarily Black institution, and white people (a minority in these videos) deal with things like racism and microaggressions.”
