Introducing Devonte (a.k.a Marnino Toussaint of the Arts Prevails Program), your new host of Respek! The Mic!
I usually craft my own introduction when announcing a new host for Respek! The Mic. But, if I am being honest, I don’t have the right to chime in here. Devonte’s poem has too much feeling; too much sadness; too much truth; too much despair; too much pride; too much passion; too much shame, warmth and compassion… I think I’ll just keep my mouth shut and let Devonte tell it how it is.
