Re: “Oregon's First African Americans

Assuming historical accuracy, this a great account of the racial situation in Oregon up to 1940. 1940 to the present, however, should be a follow-up article for the Mercury. The negligence towards Vanport and the flood that wiped it out, the horrible relocation efforts, and the intentional destruction of communities in the Albina neighborhood show how close this issue is with us. Karen J. Gibson outlines the blatant actions taken against blacks in the Albina neighborhood in her article, "Bleeding Albina". This part of the story needs to be told because it provides perspective on where Portland is with this issue and what we can do to move forward.
