BLACK FEAST

A creation of Black narrative, an offering to Black lineage, Black Feast is a culinary event that celebrates Black artists and writers through food. 

Founded and Directed by Salimatu Amabebe, Black Feast was created as a way to not only make space at the table for Black artists, but to design a whole new table for us.

At our table, guests participate in an experience that weaves together food and art, where Salimatu works with Black artists to create a four-course vegan, gluten-free, and cane sugar free gourmet meal based off of the artist’s work. Black Feast events have featured artists across disciplines, such as Jamila Woods, Madison McFerrinJayy Dodd, Lukaza Branfman-Verissimo, Amenta Abioto, and others.


Supported with creative direction by Annika Hansteen-Izora, Black Feast is led by two queer, Black artists that believe in food and art as a site of possibility. Our dinner experiences are a space where food celebrates Black art, Black stories, Black love, Black movement, & Black voices.


We are based in Portland, Oregon, and host our dinners across the country. All are welcome to Black Feast experiences.

This meal is created as a celebration, a dance, and an offering. This meal is created for you.

Love Letters to Black Folks


We ran our Love Letters to Black Folks series from June 21st - August 26th, in Berkeley California and Portland Oregon. The project involved offering free dessert, love letter, and care packages to Black Folks in our communities. Desserts were created by our Founder and Director Salimatu Amabebe, and letters were written by our Creative Director Annika Hansteen-Izora. Thank you to all of our donors, volunteers, and most of all, our community for making this project happen. Black joy is a source of resistance.
