Vanport City talk at Design Week Portland

Dear Portland people!

I’m speaking at Design Week Portland on Oct 11th (5:30pm, Ziba auditorium) with Clear Cut Press co-founder Matthew Stadler, Silicon Florist dude Rick Turoczy, Mental Floss blogger Chris Higgins and Ziba writer Carl Alviani. I’ll be discussing Vanport City, aka Portland’s Hurricane Katrina.

We were told to research something that was designed and helped make Portland the city it is today, and Vanport offers a fascinating, if sad look at Portland’s racial history. (Spoiler alert! Oregon is still white as hell. There are reasons for that.)

Come and learn about your city!
