Published Mar 28, 2016For more than a week now, Toronto-based affiliates of the Black Lives Matter movement have been protesting a string of recent local events that include this year's Afrofest restrictions, as well as the police shooting of Alex Wettlaufer earlier this month and a non-indictment ruling in the shooting of Andrew Loku.
Marking one week of protests, Saturday (March 26) was deemed a "Black Out" day of action, and as part of the heightened support behind the movement, a mixtape dubbed The Toronto Black City Mixtape: A Love Letter in Song to Black Community was released.
The powerful 15-song collection features contributions from Spek Won, Ian Kamau, Junia-T, King Reign and many more. Information on purchasing a copy can be found here, with all proceeds going toward the efforts of Black Lives Matter's Toronto coalition.
