It’s not just the City of Brampton hosting events for Black History Month.
A local arts group within the city has organized an event on February 23 called “The Root of it All: Poems on Black Love and Sexuality.” It costs $20 per ticket and will take place at the Xaymaca Jamaican Restaurant on 30 Kennedy Road South.Four poets will be sharing their poetic perspectives on the question “What does Black love look like?”, with poems exploring such themes as self-love, Black pride, Black romantic relationships, gender, and sexuality; both erotic and non-erotic.
The event will be hosted by award winning spoken word artist Lamoi, with music by DJ DiVibes. There will be performances by a variety of artists, such as Adu Bea, Nathan Nicholas, Sincerely Shyy, Mpres Walks, Nathan Baya as well as a new artist being introduced, Michelle Greenman.
Starting time is 8 pm and runs until 11 pm, but doors open at 7:30 pm.
