This Father's Day, Cyrus Aaron takes the stage with a modern twist of an epic poem. Inspired by the classic works of Homer, Aaron uses spoken word to survey the remnants of his own broken lineage while exploring the various storms crippling the Black family. The Negro Odyssey is the middle passage of a writer's journey to reconciliation-- A return home to "Black Joy."
