Vanport Mosaic

vanport logoVanport Mosaic presents: “Sting Like A Bee”: Kent Ford and the Portland Black Panthers 

(Film in the lobby)

Portland Black Panthers Founder Kent Ford shares his memories of life in Albina in 1960s-1980s, and the Party's community activism and organizing.  This story was produced by Lisa Serrano, Donovan Smith, and Mohammed Alkhadher, and is part of the on-going Vanport Mosaic oral history/Albina Chapter directed by Story Midwife Laura Lo Forti.

In these times of collective amnesia, remembering is an act of resistance. The Vanport Mosaic is a community-driven memory-activism platform that amplifies, honors, and preserves the silenced histories that surround us. Co-founded and Co-Directed by Laura Lo Forti and Damaris Webb.
