Knowing Where and Who You are

Tyrone Aiken,
Kansas City, MO

I am in Kansas City, from New York thinking about my parents great migration from South Carolina. Knowing where I am informed who I am and how I am perceived in the world. Driving while black, being followed in a store, won’t rent me an apartment in this neighborhood. Learning at an early age not to react, wishing to sometimes be carefree, and knowing my guard is always up.
