Black History Month Review!
What an amazing month! My one-woman play “A New Hope” was met with great response, here in Toronto and in Nova Scotia. It was so rewarding to know that every time I did the show, proceeds were going to 2 very good causes: The Stephen Lewis Foundation Arts Funds, that helps those in Africa affected by aids heal through art, and The Black Loyalists Heritage Society in Shelburne, Nova Scotia. I also had the opportunity to work with Historica Dominion Institute and do a workshop about the history of the play and Black History in Canada, and did some of my workshops about music and Black history. A busy month for sure, but so rewarding!
A big thank you (again!) to Cynthia Low, Tony Ansou John, ING Direct Network Orange Cafe, The Black Loyalist Heritage Society, The Stephen Lewis Foundation, CBC Metro Morning, CTV News @ noon, Jamaias DeCosta @ CIUT Radio, Sway Magazine Online, Ori Dagan @ The Epoch Times, and everyone that gave me a write up, a shout out, an email blast, & helped during the show (pre & post)… you made this month the success that it was!
