"Walking Through Portland with a Panther: The Life of Mr. Kent Ford. All Power!"
Save the date! Respond to Racism, Lake Oswego Public Library, and Lakewood Center for the Arts present a free showing of Vanport Mosaic’s “Walking through Portland with a Panther: The Life of Mr. Kent Ford. All Power!” – a solo play by Don Wilson Glenn, directed by Damaris Webb, and featuring La’Tevin Alexander. The play celebrates the life of Mr. Kent Ford, co-founder of Portland's chapter of the '60s-era black empowerment organization, and it 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.
Due to the generous support of Respond to Racism, Friends of the Lake Oswego Public Library, and Lakewood Center for the Arts, this play is offered free of charge. Ticket reservations are required, and tickets can be reserved here: https://lakewoodtheatrecompany.csstix.com/events.php starting Monday, April 10 at 10:00 am. This event will take place at Lakewood Center for the Arts, located at 368 S. State Street, Lake Oswego. Contact Alicia Yokoyama, Adult Services Librarian, at email@example.com if you have questions.
