Blockorama featuring Evelyn Champagne King @ Wellesley Stage, Toronto, ON - Sun Jun 25th!
Starting you off right and carrying you into the night are DJ Black Cat, Craig Dominic, Pleasure, Nik Red, Carma, and Vaughan. Hosting duties will belong in the artistic hands of Lali Mohamed and Zinduru (aka Kim Ninkuru). Lali is an African writer and public speaker, deeply connected to social justice advocacy. Zinduru is a performance artist from Bujumbura, Burundi, based in Toronto. Using spoken word, voguing, and visual art, she tells stories about being a black queer trans woman.
As always Blockorama brings you two big names making waves in the music industry. Cakes Da Killa will be hitting the stage mixing in his various musical influences and underground experience. The prolific Evelyn ‘Champagne’ King joins the stage as Blockorama’s headlining act.
This year Blockorama will feature a Black-owned community market with handmade and local goods from independent business owners and creators.
Blackness Yes! will be partnering with Black CAP, the Black Coalition for AIDS Prevention. Black CAP has been working tirelessly since its inception in 1989 to respond to the threat of HIV and AIDS in Toronto’s African, Caribbean, and Black communities, guided by the motto, “Because all Black people’s lives are important.”
