JUSTICE: FEBRUARY: BLACK HISTORY MONTH
During the aftermath of Charlottesville, Virginia, I met with a black acquaintance. She and her black friends had been keeping low profiles and staying indoors. They were frightened. KKK flyers had appeared on windshields in her neighborhood. This was Portland. I was oblivious that Blacks in Oregon would be personally affected by the events in Charlottesville. My ignorance embarrassed me.
