On January 28th, The Oregonian published a story on our own Liz Baxter. Ryan Kost’s story begins:
There’s a framed family photograph beside Liz Baxter’s door that she has been meaning to hang for months.
More than three dozen people pose in front of a white camper van on patchy grass in Camp Pendleton, Calif.
The people in the photo have a wide range of skin colors. Baxter, who now lives in Portland, calls it a “rainbow spectrum.”
“This is what my mom and dad created,” she says. She thinks about her parents, a black woman and a white man.
They might not have realized it, she says, but they taught her one thing: “If there’s something that doesn’t make sense, you try and change it.”
