Oregon Repeal of Forbiddance on "Free Negro and Mullato" People, Measure 3 (1926)
The Oregon Repeal of Forbiddance on "Free Negro and Mullato" People Amendment, also known as Measure 3, was on the November 2, 1926 ballot in Oregon as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was approved. The measure removed a section from the state constitution forbidding “free negroes and mulattoes” from “coming into, residing or being” in the State of Oregon and thereby granted limited civil rights to people categorized as “black” or “mulatto.”
