This award winning documentary, originally aired in 1967, was produced by KGW news director and anchor Richard Ross, Ralph Ahseln and Malcolm Cross. It brought into focus the question of how the African-American citizens of Portland had historically been marginalized and how the Albina neighborhood had been overlooked by city leaders for development and educational opportunities.
