We get into the weeds of neighborhood history once again with Fred Stewart, Portland's most controversial black activist. He grew up in Northeast Portland and has been a realtor in the neighborhood since the drug war days. In this the second part of two interviews, Fred talks about when he got into real estate during the depths of the 1980s Drug War, what it took to sell a house in the "ghetto", tax revolts, how he got around redlining and why he bought a strip club from a white man who called him " Fred Shit."
In Part 1 of this interview, Fred covers redlining, urban renewal and the heyday of Portland's black neighborhoods.
Fred has a deep history with Northeast Portland and is featured in Priced Out the movie. This is part of the "Cut Out" where we explore more from the people and POVs that were left out of the documentary Priced Out.
