PROFILES ON BLACK CANADIANS

Profiles

Karlyn Percil, a St. Lucian native and leader in Toronto’s Black Community is hosting the first public SisterTalk event on November 16th.

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.

Since 2011 a group of Christian women came together to study God’s word, and from these meetings decided they also want to help girls who are among the most vulnerable in Canada and around the world. 

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.

November 5-11, 2013, the JNBS Toronto Representative Office hosts JN Canada Real Estate Week, with Developers and Realtors from Jamaica up in Canada, allowing Canadians better access to real estate opportunities in Jamaica. ByBlacks interviewed Chief Representative Officer, Jerrold Johnson about the seminars.

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.

If you’re reading this, Dorothy Vernon Brown can’t live without you. She really can’t. Her stark reality is that without a stem cell donation from someone in our community, she will die.
