In January 2006, In Other Words Women's Books and Resources moved into a space previously occupied by the Albina Arts Center and still owned by the Albina Women's League on N. Killingsworth. Learn about the rich history of the space and the bookstore as this ten minute video examines how a feminist bookstore both contributes to and challenges racial tensions and gentrification in Portland. Originally screened the Moriarty Auditorium at PCC as part of an event and panel that creator Dawn Jones Redstone put together to discuss this story. Over 150 turned out to watch and learn. The bookstore turned community center officially closed in June of 2018.
