Note

In early October of 1967, a meeting took place in the home of Reverend Samuel Johnson, a member of the C-CAP (Church Community Action Program), in hopes of started a newspaper that would be positive force within the N.E. Portland community. The group that met are as follows: Rozell Gilmore, Executive Director of the Neighborhood Service Center (ANSC and primary agency in the War on Poverty), Hazel Hays, Mrs. Curtis Stiggers, and Reverend Paul Schulze. The group asked two others to attend: Mrs. Averill Geus (ANSC) and Gordon Macnab of the Associated Press. They all agreed that a newspaper was possible. At a later meeting, Emile Summers, interim director of ANSC, Rufus Butler, Alan Z. Bowens, and Mrs. Kay Jernigan all joined the board. Karl Lind of Cascade Publishing Company on N.E. Union Avenue (now Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.) all had contributing factors in the beginnings of The Oregon Advance Times. The first issue was released free of charge February 1968.
