TYSON AMIR

Tyson Amir is an author, musician, educator, community organizer, and freedom fighter born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. In the spirit of The Dragon, George Lester Jackson, he endeavors to utilize any and all resources at his disposal as weapons to bring about the eventual liberation of his people. Tyson has been engaged in movement work since the late 1990s. In the music world he’s an accomplished artist, his last album Purpose earned two top 5 singles as well as critical acclaim from major hip hop publications. And now Tyson is releasing Black Boy Poems, his debut work as an author. Black Boy Poems is a powerful, timely, and revolutionary body of literature. A much needed social commentary that seeks to inspire his people towards liberation.

About The Sweetwater Sessions

This multi-sensory, multi-media series of creative arts practice engagements gives voice to the dramatic collaborative process between Artist, Spirit, tradition and community in the design of freedom narratives for contemporary culture. With an aim to intersect and possibly disrupt social constructs, “The Sweetwater Sessions” allow for a deeper exploration of femininity and liquidity in the creation of a lush identity celebrating Black people and Blackness.
