Blackish by Tyrone Lewis
From family to relationships to race, we all have different factors that contribute to our overall identity. Blackish explores the complexity of identity, whether it is how one identifies oneself, or how others perceive one’s identity. Tyrone’s poetry explores the complexities of the different aspects that make up one’s self, prompting others to think on what makes them them, as well as enjoying a few film and TV references along the way.
As comfortable in front of a camera as he is behind it, Tyrone is a full-time video editor. He says words to people sometimes.
‘When I think about poets who will make new people fall in love with spoken word, I think about Tyrone.’
‘Jedi grand master poet’
‘Vanguard of the spoken word community’
