Portland Monthly slows its gentrification roll long enough to chat with Paul Knauls about N/NE Portland.

Revisiting the Mid-Century Jazz Clubs and Soul Food Kitchens of Portland’s Albina Neighborhood – Portland Monthly, a magazine serving the local bourgeoisie with vacuous lifestyle reporting, spends time with Paul Knauls, “unofficial mayor of Northeast Portland” and owner of Geneva’s Shear Perfection on MLK.  Knauls, of course, has been a leading businessman and organizer in the black community in inner North/Northeast Portland for years, and has much to say about the changes in the area. Not surprisingly, the magazine can spare just a few grafs for Mr. Knauls… and then the subject is gone, without a hint that Portland Monthly thinks any more thought should go into it.
