Don Wilson Glenn's solo play honors the legacy of Kent Ford, a renowned Black Panther Party member who co-founded Portland's chapter of the '60s-era Black empowerment organization. The play offers important cultural context for the neighborhoods in which we live—incorporating archival footage and storytelling, Walking Through Portland With A Panther helps audiences rediscover the lost history of Panthers in the area and their crucial activism. If you want to meet Ford face-to-face, you just might be able to—at 79, he still offers occasional walking tours in Northeast Portland.
