Stephen Green is featured in our documentary Priced Out, but not nearly enough. Born in a suburb of Portland, Stephen moved into the heart of Oregon's black community when he started a family. An economist, venture capitalist and activist, Stephen has worked in both government and in the private sector. He oversaw property acquisition for the City of Portland during some of the most volatile years of gentrification in the black community. He is also on a committee that distributes funds from Portland's largest affordable housing bond. He serves on the board of the city's premiere black community organization (Self Enhancement Inc.). And he helped create the nation's first nonprofit brewpub.
The black community is far more broadly defined than simply a neighborhood for Stephen. He also sees wealth creation, rather than social justice, as the most vital challenge in charting an equitable future for Portland and the nation's African American community. Listen in as Stephen talks about the emerging role that the black middle class will come to play in urban America and all the things that Priced Out the documentary failed to cover.
