I noticed this year that friends of mine have been calling it “Manifesto Season.” If you are in Toronto and you’re into hip hop of a certain kind you probably know about the Manifesto Festival of Community and Culture. This is the first promo video for the festival that is already underway. I met Denzel and his father (who you see in the video for a moment) a few months ago after leaving the Manifesto offices with Che. He has a wonderful spirit and I found out that his father is from Cuba as soon as we began speaking, a place that holds a special place in my heart. Today is Wombanifesto and there will be plenty of events leading up to the main event on the 25th. All the information is on the Manifesto Festival Website.
