Do you have a Portia story?
"In the late 1940’s or early 1950’s she stayed with us for about one year. She lived on the top floor of our house at 64 Delaware avenue in Toronto. Norris and I had our bedroom on that same floor and we shared a bathroom with her. She was very intelligent and I enjoyed talking to her. She spent a lot of time washing her pairs of white opera gloves and hanging them out to dry in that washroom. Her father was an important figure in the black community in the east coast. I have an LP of her opera singing which I treasure." Stanley Weisman February 5, 2018
