  • This thesis is an IRB-exempt oral history focused on the non-profit Corvallis Multicultural Literacy Center (CMLC) in Corvallis, Oregon. The CMLC, formerly on 9th Street, was known to many community members as the Yellow House. The Yellow House was a dedicated community-based space where people of all cultures could come together to learn and share in genuine conversation in a safe, supportive and welcoming environment. This oral history project attempts to bring together the voices and stories of the Yellow House demolished in the fall of 2018. These stories also encompass the lives of women within organizations that shared collaborative space with the CMLC; Casa Latinos Unidos, Organización de Latinas Unidas, Alma Latina and Fiesta Mexicana 4-H Club. The nature of this shared community space and the stories that unfolded within its walls offer a unique glimpse into the power of participatory spaces primarily for women.
