Interviewing d’bi.young anitafrika was an amazing experience.  

We’d met before at a workshop I did with her at International Women’s Day 2008. I remember being impressed with how she conducted the group and with her performance at the end of the session.

d’bi., although well known worldwide, is very humble and treated me like I was BIG media: lights, camera, action!  

d’bi. was patient and understanding with my low-budget production: my tri-pod collapsed in front of her, my camera wasn’t working well… Still, she answered all my questions and gave me an entire hour out of her busy schedule.  

We laughed, talked, shared, and hugged.

d’bi. opens the Sankofa Trilogy, part of a 15 month global tour, tonight, 8 pm, at the Tarragon Theatre in Toronto, ON, Canada.  

Check d’bi. out and watch the interview + amazing performance below.
