d’bi.young anitafrika – on coast salish territories, vancouver. Join us for a night with d’bi.young anitafrika, a Toronto-based, Jamaican born and raised dub-poet performer and writer. Her work is prolific, compelling and political. She weaves stories that explore issues of colonialism, racism, sexism, while fostering revolutionary change. Her work as a dub poet includes five albums, including collaborations with Beau Dixon, Gregory Roy, Cuba’s Paso Firme, and Assata Shakur. d’bi.young became well known for Blood.claat, part of a trilogy about a girl’s journey to womanhood. Her writings have appeared in Fireweed Feminist Quarterly, Contemporary Verse, and The African Canadian Theatre Review. Her new production company focuses on promoting radical artistic works. More information about her work can be found at http://www.dbiyoung.net/

Don’t miss this rare performance with d’bi.young anitafrika and other local artists and activists, followed by an open mic (don’t be shy! we encourage youth, elders, those with one week of experience, those with ten years of performing under their belt, singers, storytellers, emcees, poets to all feel welcome on the mic).

Proceeds to d’bi and No One is Illegal-Vancouver.
