To whet your appetite here’s a clip from The Man Behind The Mic, a profile of spoken word artist and entrepreneur Dwayne Morgan. In it he discusses his art, and the reasons why he takes time to promote Canadian-Caribbean events like “When Sisters Speak.”

The Literature Alive documentary series profiles Caribbean-Canadian authors and follows the evolution of Caribbean-heritage fiction from the 1960s through to the hip-hop generation.
These revealing and provocative documentaries explore the lives and creative processes of these modern Caribbean artists. In doing so, we discover the links between personal experience, ancestry, and migration; between Canada and the Caribbean; between an artist and their art.
The series was produced in association with Bravo! Canadian Learning Television, Book Television, OMNI, and Gayelle TV (Trinidad).
