El Jones is one of the headliners for the upcoming Dwayne Morgan produced poetry series, When Sisters Speak. She is an energetic, outspoken activist, who addresses a  lot of systemic race related issues in Canada.

Rarely do I get to sit down and chat with with my friends about their shows, so it was a stroke of bad luck that our writer was unable to do the interview, and good luck for me that I stepped in to talk to one of the hardest working men in Black Canadian show business; Dwayne Morgan about his 15th annual spoken word concert, When Brothers Speak.

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.

On the verge of the upcoming 3 the hard way release the “Empowerment Series” (Book, Film, and Soundtrack). DJ, Recording Artist, Author & Entrepreneur Joel NR Powell raises the bar one more notch higher by being featured inside XXL Magazine 150th Issue

ByBlacks caught up with one of Toronto’s most promising young artists Camille Lauren, and spoke to her about her motivation, style and launching her first solo exhibition.

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”.

Three years ago we produced an erotic poetry show called “Freak Nasty” (since then the name has been softened to “The Sweet Spot”). It was a fun show; hosted by a comedian, with live music, fashion show and a DJ, featuring erotic poets from the USA, and a fresh new Canadian erotic poet named Victoria Grant. It was her first time on stage doing erotic poetry (though you wouldn't really have known it). On January 19th she unveils her inner thoughts via her debut book, 47 Kisses.

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, but Sheldon is also a signed artist with Redeeming Music Label and will be recording his debut album in November.

What happens when you mix a street-smart Montreal Born Canadian, with Jamaican roots & the complex diversity of Toronto's cut-throat entertainment scene? You get Keesha Brownie.

Troy Crossfield is no stranger to the stage, having already played the 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.
