Journey To Radiance Ep. 6: "Journey to Poetic Justice"

Did you know that April is both National Poetry and National Minority Health Awareness Months? Collectively they create the perfect marriage to demonstrate CBMA's commitment to improving life outcomes for Black men and boys through an infusion of arts/culture and health and healing.

For our latest installment of our "Journey To Radiance" podcast series, we feature Tyson Amir, a lyricist who is blessed with a poignant message, electrifying cadence, and enlightening lyrics, all combined to form music with enough heart and soul to move a generation. Tyson is not only a poet, emcee, educator, author, activist, but is also a self-described freedom fighter. His fight is born out of his love for humanity, justice and peace for all, each of which is intricately woven into his praxis and practice.

Check out our conversation with Tyson here!
