The Black Portlanders


Black People. Portland. 

My name is Intisar Abioto. I’m a writer, dancer, photographer, and multi-disciplinary artist. The idea of The Black Portlanders came to my sister Hanifah one night as my mom, my other sisters, and I all sat round talking about Black people in Portland .. as we often do. A spark caught to flame that night and here we are. 

We’re Black Portlanders documenting Black Portlanders.
