My project is a poetry chapbook that I created as a final in my Advanced Poetry Class. This is a collection of poems that I made while in the class and they range from topics/themes about my dad, the military, being black, queer, or being a black queer in the south, and police brutality. I believe that this collection is a pretty good one as it is handmade and talks about my experiences as a queer person of color living in the south and that’s important perspective especially in what’s been going on in the university this semester and year alone. I put my voice at the front of this collection and I feel that that’s one of my strong suits in writing. To be able to capture all of that was a journey and I’m very proud of the art that I made this semester.
