They came from all over the country: men, women, children, families. They came mostly by train during WWII to serve their country, not only to survive but to obtain the American Dream. After the war, many left, returning to their hometowns of Georgia, Texas, Oklahoma and beyond, but some made Vanport their home until the flood of 1948 washed it away. In this musical for the whole family, members will smell the opportunity, touch the dream, hear the music, taste the victory and see the canvas of Vanport.

This program is part of the Our Story: Portland Through an African American Lens digital collection and project.

Made possible by The National Endowment for the Humanities Fund of The Library Foundation.
