In this episode of Us As We Are, we visit with representatives of the Southern Oregon Historical Society and Oregon Black Pioneers, who collaborated to hold a celebration for the renaming of "Negro Ben Mountain," which has been changed to "Ben Johnson Mountain." We'll learn about the history of Ben Johnson and other black pioneers in Oregon, followed by a hike to the top of the newly renamed geographic feature. Happy Juneteenth!
