Portland art festival event is free to 'Black folks' but '$80 for all others'

The Portland art festival event is taking place on Sunday and charging attendees only if they are not Black, its webpage says

One event at a Portland art festival being hosted in Oregon boasts that it is "free or by donation for Black folks" but costs $80 for "all others" to attend.

Black Feast: Black Imagerial is an event within the Time-Based Art Festival being hosted on Sunday that is a "culinary event celebrating Black artists and writers through food."

A description for the event states that "guests participate in an experience that weaves together food and art" where an event host "works with Black artists to create a multi-course, vegan, gluten-free meal based off of the artist’s work."

However, the webpage for the event states that it is "free or by donation for Black folks" and "$80 for all others."
