Tyrone Lewis

Blackish: Book Launch

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 their identity. Tyrone's poetry explores the complexities of the different aspects that make up ones self, prompting others to think on what makes them them. As well as enjoying a few film and TV references along the way.
