Illuminating Black Portlanders. A photographic journey across Portland.. and beyond. This is The Black Portlanders.

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.
