This documentary short is an introduction to the issue of shadeism (also knows as colorism), the discrimination that exists between the lighter-skinned and darker-skinned members of the same community. This documentary short looks specifically at how it affects young women within the African, Caribbean, and South Asian diasporas. Through the eyes and words of 5 young womyn and 1 little girl - all females of colour - the film takes us into the thoughts and experiences of each. Overall, ‘Shadeism’ explores where shadeism comes from, how it directly affects us as women of colour, and ultimately, begins to explore how we can move forward through dialogue and discussion.
The “Shadeism: Digging Deeper” Indiegogo Campaign will be ending this Sunday, March 17th @ 11:59pm. Please donate where possible and please share with your networks (email, social media - Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr - blogs, phone calls, face-to-face chats, etc).

School’s Out | Free Instrumental track
Ive been pretty quiet with music lately and a lot of people have been asking me if im still making music. Obvioussssllyy tho.
To be honest, during school i was struggling really hard to find inspiration and just felt oppressed and stressed (creatively, spiritually, emotionally, etc.. lol) by the whole school thing even though I was around a lot of creative people outside of school (Shoutouts to the Remix Project)
I made this tune after my finals. It’s something for you all to just chill & vibe out to.
Singers/Rappers/Artists are free to make dubs/remixes whatever out of it.
* I cant tell u who yet, but Im fortunate to have one of Toronto’s finest working on a dub to it already so if you decide to rmx it, come with HEAT *
NO ONE can’t say i never gave them anything!
Hope u dig it :)
ps. I mayy be dropping 1 or 2 more instrumentals throughout the summer so stay tuned (as well as official song releases with artists of course)
because he is a great friend, an amazing person and so great at what he does! never does he lose focus! support.
