History

“The Ave” was once the vibrant heart of Portland’s Black community. How times have changed.

About the Project

Our goal is to speak through art to the remaining African Americans in the N Williams area and share the stories of both those remaining and those who have left, in order encourage a community which has regularly been trod upon by public policy and actions.

Meet the Artists

Cleo Davis and Kayin Talton Davis have been designing and printing together for over a decade.
