Episode 40: Learning to Breathe (ft. Tariq Touré)
Writer and poet Tariq Touré sits down with us to talk vulnerability, fatherhood and what we owe Black women. Plus we share what’s on our bookshelves, shoutout some of our favorite poets and discuss the role poetry can play in imagining a better world.
Tariq Touré, @TariqToure, is a Muslim writer, husband, father and native child of Baltimore, Maryland. Toure’s sophomore collection, 2 Parts Oxygen, is a weighty tribute to family roots, the miraculous privilege of fatherhood and Islam in Black America.
