Cypher follows three Black artists working to empower youth of African descent in Vancouver, BC – a city known for its historical erasure of Black history and culture. Through urban agriculture, performance, and community conversations, Kor, Dae, and Alisha create spaces for youth to connect, co-inspire, and discuss the complexities of the Black experience.
