North Portland Gentrification Tour
Saturday, October 20 | 10AM – 4PM
Departs from Union Station
Co-produced by Hazina Management, LLC

The Black community in North Portland has a rich and diverse culture built on friendships, business and social connections – all of which have been adversely affected by urban development and gentrification. This bus tour educates participants as to the rise, fall and efforts to reunite Portland’s Black neighborhoods.

Sites include the Hughes Memorial United Methodist Church for storytelling and song by community elders, and a soul food lunch (not included in ticket price) with local legendary jazz musicians at a local Masonic Lodge. Afterwards, board the bus and learn about many sites of historical importance, including homes and businesses of prominent African Americans, hotels and shipyards, and the former site of Vanport City.

    I am just seeing this event. If anyone is unable able to attend, please contact me. I will be in town for a week. My family has deep roots in portland. My grandfather moved his family up here for a better future. He worked in the shipyard built by Kaiser. They lived in Vanport until the dyke broke. My grandfather owned a gas station in N. Portland and help build a church that is still in existence today. I would love to be a part of this tour and learn more about our Portland history. Again, please add me to your waiting list.

    Thank you!

    I am very interested in learning more. I am a African American student studying at Concordia College and I am writing a paper on the affect of gentrification on the African American neighborhood. I very much interested in the history of Portland, Oregon.

    Hello:

    I am also interested in this gentrification coalition building for the Black community to exist in this city of Portland, Oregon.

    I am a native of Portland, Oregon, a graduate of Concordia University, as well, and want to see a fair shake of funding be placed in the North/Northeast community.

    I have an interest in Advocacy Lobbying.

    Those interested also, please contact me so we can meet and get our thoughts wrapped around this concept and get a part of the pie, too!

    I have a source to help us get our ideas in the right arena for moving forward so—-get aboard the train of knowledge and successes.
