When Brothers Speak 19 – live spoken word event

It was so much fun creating images at the green screen photo booth at North America’s largest and longest-running showcase of Black Spoken Word Poets recently.  The 19th edition of “When Brothers Speak” took to the stage at Toronto’s St. Lawrence Centre For the Arts and did not disappoint.

Performances by Randell Adjei (Toronto), Bluz (North Carolina), Ian Keteku (Toronto), Rage Almighty (Texas), Dasan Ahanu (North Carolina), and Dwayne Morgan (Toronto) were electric and had the crowd engaged and fully entertained.

Also, Dwayne Morgan the creator, host and performer at When Brothers Speak released not one, but two CD recordings.

Anyway, here are a few pics we captured. Enjoy!

Have a picture perfect day Beautiful People

Salute to The Honourable Jean Augustine

On Sunday September 10th we celebrated  Jean Augustine’s 80th birthday. It included representation and tributes from all three levels government, dignitaries and Hollywood celebrities. It was incredible!  She is incredible. Of her many accomplishments being the first African Canadian woman to be elected to the Canadian House of Commons, the first to serve in the federal Cabinet or her numerous honorary doctorates aren’t her greatest accomplishments.  Jean Augustine’s story is much deeper than this. Here’s a deeper look into a pillar in the community by Marcus Medford in the profiles section on byblacks.com.
