Celebrating Black Love Through Spoken Word and Music





To celebrate Black History Month, Black Future Month, and the lovey dovey feeling we get around this time, we invite you to "The Root Of It All: Poems on Black Love and Sexuality" This show is an experience, it has been for the past three years, and it will be on February 25, 2017.

You will experience a night of powerful spoken word and musical art, centered on exploring and celebrating the different facets of the Black love experience. Artists will be sharing their perspectives on the question "What does Black love look like?" with poetry and music exploring such themes as self-love, Black pride, Black romantic relationships, faith, and community.

Here is a list and bios of the performers. 


Breanna Chanelle




Stories have a way of carrying us away to destinations we may have never been able to imagine at the will of our own minds. It is through the telling of stories that we are able to experience one of the most integral parts of our human existence; empathy.

The fascination of story telling mixed with a desperation for expression is what brought Breanna Chanelle to poetry, and inevitably created a second home for her on the spoken word stage.


Hanging tightly to the end of every word that escapes her lips is the hope that her art will successfully extend the life of each narrative being shared, in such a way that listeners will carry the stories with them and pass them on to every soul they come in contact with thereafter.

Delisha



Delisha describes herself as just an island girl, hailing from the island paradise of Barbados. She has been performing spoken word since the age of 15, and uses the gift of words to splash a little colour onto the silhouettes of life.

Anika Davidson




Graceful, ambitious & creative are just a few words that describe independent Singer/Songwriter Anika Davidson. For her, singing is not just a talent, it’s a skill and a form of expression that can be used to touch the hearts and lives of others.

Influenced by reggae artists such as Bob Marley and Beres Hammond and R&B acts such as Lauren Hill, Monica & SWV, Anika continues to hone her sound, create memorable performances & share her love for music with the world.

Her persistence, dedication to creating music & boldness to remain authentic is what separates her from the rest.
