I had to reblog. Criminalization of blacks in America is real. We are sacred people. I am raising two black boys. It’s an ‘everybody’ issue. We’ve been preyed upon for too long. “feeling threatened and being threatened is not the same thing”. Light, love and justice for those who find it and use it. peace.

Take 5 minutes to watch this interview of Jesse Williams take on the Michael Dunn trial 

If only I could be as polite and civil he was in the interview.

They not hearing you though Jessie. And the fact that she wants to note wealth as privilege. However, she doesn’t want to mention white privilege. These media shitheads make me so fucking sick.

More Power to you!

It was a crazy ice storm that hit Toronto! It is said to be the worst ice storm ever to hit the city, many as in 250,000 + people were without power for days. I had a couple friends stay with me as their entire neighborhood was without power, which means no heat in -10 to -15 degrees weather. It’s well…ya know…like really cold to be without heat. Warming centers around the city were set up where people could warm up, charge their phones and sleep. Looking at the weight of the trees covered by ice, looked like a surreal picture or a real cool animation, it was beauty that caused misery. It was great that people became creative and communal. People come through when it comes to these moments of urgent survival and some don’t come thru, until they are in that position and need the help themselves. Hope we can all grow to see each other as ourselves, be understanding, show compassion with awareness. Much love to all y’all during this time and more Power to you! xo

Piece of Mine Festival 2013/ The Ride Or Die Project

I’ve been truly blessed to be apart of the Piece of Mine Festival giving black playwrights both emerging and established a platform to share new works. This will be happening Sept.13-15 at Palmerston Library Theatre 7:30-9:30 each night. I will be acting in the play The Other Side of The Game written by my great sister friends Amanda Parris and Keisha Moniqe Simpson ! It tells the story of the ride or die chick loyal to their family, lover, friend, community who is serving time in jail. It tells the story of the woman, the ride or die chick in the waiting room for a piece of solace and answers to questions from loved ones incarcerated; it tells the story of the woman that are in it for Life for their people! Whatever era its set in, they are loyalty is a constant for them even if it hurts to be!

I’m so proud of  Amanda and Keisha as it is a story that’s seldom told and what a better and impact-ful way than theatre!  The Other Side of the Game is on Friday 7:30pm! Buy your tickets at http://pieceofmine-efbevent.eventbrite.ca/ and it check out!


Over You -Official Music Video released

A new music video to go with the single Over You that I released online June 15th and now the video. Random shots of me in Toronto, going through the emotions of the song, finding self love through letting go. Thanks to Fred Yurichuck, Josh Haggarty and Jason Lutz for capturing and editing the footage.
