N Williams Avenue is changing. A lot. What many now living, working and playing in the area don’t know is that for the majority of the 20th century, N Williams, in the Albina neighborhood, was Portland’s largest African American community. Join our speaker panel to learn how the Historic Black Williams Project highlights this chapter of Portland history through a multimedia public art project. Speakers share the history of Albina, the impetus for the RACC Project and how art can be used as an instrument for Social Justice action and reform.
