    Artists

    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.  

    Chances are you have seen her face recently on a poster on Facebook. Or maybe on stage in The Buddy Holly Story.

    Our team ran into award-winning Youth Worker and Motivational Speaker Francis Atta at the If I Ruled Toronto event held in October at the Sheraton Centre. His book, The Flip, provides candid advice to both parents and youth on how to transform their lives from negative to positive.
