Reed Theatre will host Vanport Mosaic’s one-person performance, Walking Through Portland with a Panther, The Life of Mr Kent Ford. All Power! Celebrating the legacy of Mr Kent Ford, co-founder of Portland's chapter of the '60s-era black empowerment organization, this newly commissioned solo play incorporates archival footage and storytelling to understand the legacy of local resistance, rediscover lost neighborhoods where the Panthers used to patrol, and learn the intimate makings of unsung leaders of protest and revolution” (from Vanport Mosaic’s website).

This event is funded by a NW5C Engage Grant that supports a community engaged partnership with Portland’s Vanport Mosaic, a non profit organization committed to “memory activism” and telling Portland’s silenced histories.

Sponsored by the Reed theatre department. Free and open to the public. Make your reservation here.
