Kamelah Adams received hate mail in July and is now spreading love.
PORTLAND, Ore. — Spooky inflatables are not the only things decorating yards in Northeast Portland’s Irvington neighborhood. You will find plenty of special yard signs, as well.
“I can’t even explain the feeling,” said Kamelah Adams. “I feel so loved.”
Adams is the inspiration behind the signs that show a fist in the middle of a heart. The message is simple – love over hate. “I think people need this message,” she said.
Perhaps nobody knows the significance of the message more than Adams. Over the summer, after showing up on television in support of Black lives, Adams received a letter in the mail. It was laced with a half-dozen racial slurs. The sender even threatened to murder Adams and her daughter with an AR-15. It was terrifying and eye-opening at the same time.
