Bio:
As a child, Sean Avery was a military brat who kicked his grandma because he thought he was a Power Ranger (but that’s a story for another time). Today, Avery is a rapper, poet, First Wave Scholar (look it up), and senior studying English Creative Writing at the University of Madison–Wisconsin, by way of the Sun (b.k.a. the suburbs of Avondale, Arizona). His work embraces both his imagination and his journey towards defining his own Black Masculinity.
