Only 6 streets in Portland are named after people of color by Erin Davis

In this project, I researched the origins of 900-odd Portland, Oregon street names to see who we've named streets after. Shockingly, a just 6 streets are named after people of color, only one of whom had any tie to the area. 18 streets were named after identifiable women, and one single street was named after an openly LGBTQ person.
