A young dub poet is swept up in the violence of the 1980 national election in Jamaica. Arrested and interrogated, she finds the strength in her maternal ancestors to stand up for her country’s future. Featuring the plays blood.claat, benu, and word! sound! powah!, these extraordinary stories of three generations of strong women and their resolute belief in blood and truth form a powerful whole.

d’bi.young.anitafrika is an award-winning African-Jamaican dub poet, monodramatist, educator, and one of North America’s most celebrated storytellers. She has toured and lectured nationally and internationally, founded the pan afrikan performing arts institute (papai), participated in seven residencies, and garnered numerous awards, all while raising her two young sons, moon and phoenix. In 2015 d’bi was named one of the seven YWCA Toronto Women of Distinction.

“d’bi.young is a force of nature, and I’m not saying that as a casual turn of phrase.” —Dorianne Emmerton, Mooney on Theatre

“There’s no denying the dramatic and emotional powah in d’bi.young.anitafrika’s tale of a revolutionary dub poet.” —Jon Kaplan, NOW Magazine
