Black Covid-19 Recollections by Knowa Know

By Knowa Know (he/him/his), Yale Divinity School, Class of 2023


My project is based on my poetry of the experiences I had this year through grad school, finishing undergrad through the pandemic, and living it all as an African American man in these times of racial unrest.

About the artist

My name is Noah Humphrey but I go by the stage name Knowa Know. My pronouns are he-series. I am in a Masters of Divinity Program at Yale virtually from my home in Honolulu, Hawaii. I recently graduated from Whittier College my B.A in Religious Studies and a minor in Holistic Care. I use poetry as my second voice infusing all my experiences from South Central LA, being a black neospirtualist Christian, and my environment(s) to perceive my soul speaking into my poetry. Overall I see that my words move me and others forward with the more I know and vice versa. Thus the more you know(Knowa Know!).
