Black Boy Joy

Honored and happy that the Archie-Brown Springboard Fund could support the first Black Boy Joy poetry workshop at Chapter 510/the Dept of Make Believe (and thanks to Chapter 510’s fearless leader Janet Heller for reaching out to ask). Very proud of the five young men and their mentors who read from their beautiful anthology tonight. Congrats and snaps all around!

(Black Joy: An Anthology of Black Boy Poems is available through Nomadic Press.)

Love this event flyer!
