This image of Portland opera singer Onry was made in the basement of Yale Union, a space where he practices and performs. Just a few weeks before going viral for an impromptu duet of the Star Spangle Banner, Onry was silenced by a security guard while singing in the streets downtown. “It does make me ask a few questions about how we see African American individuals in America.
