In The Wake Of Our Shadow Web 01

This week on the podcast, Gavin chats with Actor/Playwright/Director Tyla Abercrumbie about her hit play, Relentless, and her deep commitment to telling stories from the Black experience that have been often overlooked.

Tyla shares her thoughts on pivotal moments in American history - moments that our country tends to lean on when defining the Black experience, the most recent being the murder of George Floyd. She reminds us how vital it is to take control of our own narrative and ultimately our own skin instead of letting others use it to decorate their stories and characters - stories and characters that were clearly not created with us in mind.
