These photos describe the rich history of the college, and the hard work it took to get PCC where it is today.

The African Film Collection represents feature and documentary films from the African continent. Most of these films were made by African directors. Each year, Portland Community College is part of the Cascade Festival of African Films. To support this event, the library has purchased many of these films for use by PCC Faculty, staff and students.
