D’bi Young is a hero of mine. She also a friend. We came up in the Toronto poetry scene together. D’bi is an example of a free person and a true community artist in every sense of the word. She has been pushing the boundaries of what it means to be a community oriented creative spirit for as long as I have known her and she is powerful and uncompromising in her push. D’bi recently moved from Toronto to South Africa (Cape Town) and started YEMOYA and has been applying her Sorplusi principles to her international dub theatre programs. I hope to spend time with her in South Africa soon.
