Antwon Evans is a Savannah native and Deep alumnus. He has always had a fierce passion for the arts and an intimate relationship with poetry and the Deep Center. He found his love for poetry in 2009 as an elementary school student in one of Deep Center’s first workshops with founder Catherine Killingsworth. In 2015, he returned  as a youth artist in Deep Center’s new high school program, Block by Block, until he graduated in 2017.  Antwon has also participated in the Black Youth Leadership Program (BYLDI), led by Dr. Mildred McClain of the Harambee House, where black youth leaders across the city explored environmental injustices, socioeconomic and racial inequalities, and advocated for the changes they wanted to see in their community. In addition to being active in the community and his passion for leading social change, Antwon can be found on a stage near you performing original music and spoken word poetry
