Anti-Black graffiti in Portland? We'll look at the History of Black Folks in Oregon with Walidah Imarisha. Last Thursday John Bryant, the grandmaster at the MW St. Joseph Grand Lodge discovered racist graffiti on the wall of the lodge near Fremont Street and Mississippi Avenue. Nearby food carts were also vandalized with anti-African American graffiti. The community got together on Saturday on Mississippi Avenue for a walk through and sit-in event entitled "Surviving Mississippi" to protest the vandalism.

In the light of this event, Bread and Roses will air an interview Delphine Criscenzo and Samantha Taylor conducted with Historian and Activist Walidah Imarisha last spring focusing on the history of Black folks in oregon.

Fusion Centers,  Have you heard of them? No-o-o not a new type of food cart or a place to blend teas. But Oregon does have 2 of them. They are Secret Surveillance Centers started by the Department of Homeland Security, "Fusing" intelligence gathered by local state and federal law enforcement and then helping to coordinate response. Paired with local Joint Terrorism Task Forces, they try to keep their locations & their influence hidden but their impact is huge. KBOO host and investigative reporter, Linda Olson-Osterlund, reports on the newest fusion center in Oregon.  Its location and its actions.
