Benefiting the Next Generation of Entrepreneurs
Funds raised through the MLK Dream Run will benefit the Soul District Fellows Youth Entrepreneur Career Leadership Program designed to help emerging entrepreneurs (ages 16-24) improve and expand skills that come from operating successful businesses. Our Fellows are able to leverage these skills to secure opportunities for better employment and pathways to higher education. Each year, in collaboration with the generous support of Multnomah County’s Summer Works program, approximately 20-30 interns are employed to help put the MLK Dream Run together. Simultaneously their work plan helps both connect them with the business community while leaving a sustainable and positive impact in the community. 

Over the past year the Soul District Fellows program has expanded to include the Green Lighting Black Lives Matter Youth Media Project which recruits and trains next generation youth entrepreneurs, ages 14-26, in the usage and purposeful application of cutting edge video technology, film and video production equipment and seeks to inspire and empower them to bring their unique perspectives in telling the stories of their community of Portland, Oregon. Through controlling the narratives, they learn how to control the outcomes and experience the business confidence that come with you increase feelings of capability, significance and influence

Not Sorry: Feminist Experimental Film from the 1970s to Today

  • October 7, 2018 – October 28, 2018 
  • Opening soundtracks provided by XRAY.FM DJs

What is feminist experimental film? How is it feminist, and what makes it experimental? Through this four-program series, we explore these questions, inspired by the new text Film Feminisms: A Global Introduction co-written by PSU film professor Dr. Kristin Lené Hole and Dr. Dijana Jelača. Taking place each Sunday evening in October, Not Sorry presents a survey of short works spanning from the 1970s to today with an explicit intent on questioning the largely white male canon of experimental film while positioning different modes of experimentation within both international and contemporary terms. The program will include more well-known works like Peggy Ahwesh’s She Puppet (2001) that repurposes footage of video game character Lara Croft; under-recognized landmarks like Black feminist work from LA Rebellion filmmaker Barbara McCullough, Water Ritual #1: An Urban Rite of Purification (1979); and contemporary pieces like the hand-manipulated 16mm confessional films Solitary Acts #5 (2015) and Her Silent Seaming (2014) from Turkish-American filmmaker Nazli Dinçel, who will be in attendance October 14. Portland-based artists Ariella Tai, Vanessa Renwick, Julie Perini, and Hannah Piper Burns will also be represented in the series, bringing a local perspective to the film selections and discussions.
