From Maxville to Vanport
Alberta Rose Theatre

A live performance of the Portland Jazz Composers Ensemble’s “From Maxville to Vanport” featuring poetry by Renee Mitchell, music by Ezra Weiss, and video by Kalimah Abioto.

This piece of community-guided music incorporates the stories of two unique towns in Oregon’s history, Maxville and Vanport, in songs for Marilyn Keller with our 12-member jazz ensemble. Maxville and Vanport both had significant multicultural populations at a time when Oregon was particularly unfriendly to non-white residents, and their histories deserve to be heard and better understood by all Oregonians.

The Portland Jazz Composers’ Ensemble is a 12-piece jazz chamber orchestra which commissions and performs original works by its members and by other jazz composers in the Portland music community. The PJCE has received support from the OCF’s 2015 Creative Heights and Small Arts programs, the Regional Arts and Culture Council, and the Oregon Arts Commission. Now in its tenth year, the PJCE has commissioned more than 50 composers and produced more than 30 concerts of original works.

Anti Police Brutality Solidarity Rally
Chapman Square

On Sunday June 4th, 2017, just a few days after one of Joey Gibson’s fan boys murdered 2 people of the max train, Gibson and his goons invaded our city. He invited violent alt-right out of town agitators, Kyle “Based Stickman” Chapman and “Baked Alaska”, as guests of honor. Our local officials, including Mayor Ted Wheeler and then chief of police Mike Marshman, invited Joey to speak with them in a private meeting before the event, accomplishing nothing but stoking the fire of anger in our community.

Portland showed up in force to counter Gibson’s hateful rhetoric, outnumbering their attendance by at least 1000 people. After hours of peaceful protest, PPB attacked the counter protesters to create cover for Gibson’s rally to leave the park. The police created a war zone in downtown Portland that day, shooting protesters with pepper spray bullets and throwing flash bang grenades into crowded areas, forcing the crowd to leave the area, kettling and detaining over 300 people in a mass illegal roundup.

PPB has a well detailed, sordid history of overuse of force. They continually murder, terrorize, and abuse; people of color, children, people in mental health crisis, and the houseless in Portland, all of our most marginalized neighbors. They attack peaceful protesters and protect the violent fascists at every turn. It’s time we take our town back, and stand up to the Portland police and tell them we will no longer allow them to bully, abuse, and murder us with impunity. Join us for a solidarity rally on Sunday June 3rd, 2:00pm, at Chapman Park.

Keaton Otis Vigil
NE 6th & NE Halsey

Keaton Otis was a young Black man murdered by the Portland police over six years ago, May 12, 2010. The police admitted they stopped him for "looking like a gangster". They shot him 23 times after tazing him while he sat in the driver's seat. Later police said Keaton had a gun, but have yet to produce it.

Keaton's father Fred Bryant held a monthly vigil on the 12 of every month since his son's murder on the spot where Keaton's life was taken. Fred Bryant did this for over three years, fighting for justice for his son, every single month in the rain, the dark, the heat, the snow. Fred Bryant passed away October 29, 2013.

His family and community have committed to continuing the vigils every month on the 12th, until justice is achieved for Keaton, for Fred, for our whole community.

Please join that struggle this month and help to spread the word.
