Our team ran into award winning Youth Worker and Motivational Speaker Francis Atta at the If I Ruled Toronto event held October at the Sheraton Centre. His book, The Flip, provides candid advice to both Parents and Youth on how transform their lives from negative to positive. We got an opportunity to speak with him about what drives him, and how he is using his own life experiences to help youth in Ontario. During the interview I could feel the passion and confidence of this young man over the phone.

Joining a play that already has some traction is difficult, especially playing a lead role. ByBlacks caught up with actor Damian Brown about touring with one of the most successful Caribbean plays ever written/produced in Canada; Marcia Brown’s “I Need To Know My Father”.
Troy Crossfield is no stranger to the stage, having already playing lead in over 12 plays including Darren Anthony’s 'Secrets of a Black Boy' and Cheryl Nembhard’s Gospel Musical 'My Brothers Keeper' amongst many others.
With the final performance of The Ultimate Sacrifice just days away, we wanted to catch up with one of the lead actors, Sheldon Neil. Not only is he an actor, Sheldon is a signed artist with Redeeming Music Label and will be recording his debut album in November.

If you watched the recent promo video for the upcoming Toronto Urban Queens of Comedy show, there's one crazy woman doing a Busta Rhymes impression that had us on the floor laughing. Thats Zabrina Chevannes.
