"Remembering the Power of Words" The Life of an Oregon Activist, Legislator, and Community Leader
 
 
By Avel Louise Gordly - Remembering the Power of Words recounts the personal and professional journey of Avel Gordly, the first African-American woman elected to the Oregon State Senate.

The book is a brave and honest telling of Gordly’s life. She shares the challenges and struggles she faced growing up black in Portland in the 1950s and 1960s, as well as her determination to attend college, the dedication to activism that took her from Portland to Africa, and her eventual decision to run for a seat in the state legislature.
Black political engagement is a strong component of economic opportunity. However, that union is clearly not where it ought to be. Consequently, GDN is publishing developments, events, jobs and articles that show you how to achieve a political and economic union in your community. Share GDN.
