First come, first served.

Power to the People

The Vanport Mosaic presents a multi-faceted oral history presentation and community conversation led by Mr. Kent Ford, a founding member of the Portland Chapter of the  '60s-era black empowerment organization - the Black Panther Party. Watch the short documentary "Sting Like A Bee," and listen to Kent Ford's personal memory of revolutionary activism and community organizing.  The event culminates in a conversation between Mr. Ford and another local activist, connecting these stories to the broader political scene and stimulating a group reflection that links this provocative history to the challenges we face today.

This event will take place at the Rose City Book Pub: 1329 NE Fremont St Portland 97212
