Portland’s Historic

Redline

Disctrict

…Portland’s past, “redlining” practices created exclusionary zones for “Negros and Orientals,” by real estate, banking and insurance companies.  Agents could lose their licenses for crossing this color barrier.  Now urban gentrification displayces low-income families, as the remaining affordable housing stock in this area disappears.
