The enigmatic Intisar Abioto and clan announced today that they successfully raised $15,000 via their Indiegogo campaign to fund the continuance of their increasingly popular The Black Portlanders project. But who’s happy with just meeting goals? Not the Abiotos.

Donations have poured in over the weekend as Intisar released her long-winded yet compelling Open Letter To Portland & The World and was also featured in a trailer for Whitelandia, an upcoming documentary about institutional racism in Portland that set my Facebook world ablaze.

As of press time, the campaign has raised over $17,000. Naturally, Intisar kept pushing, announcing a stretch goal to launch what she called a “Full-scale Black Portlanders Summer Photo Exhibit”. Donators will be rewarded with a variety of perks ranging from autographed post cards to photo-shoots to dinner parties. Definitely something to check out if you have an interest in under-represented cultural history.
