Tarnynon Onumonu

Bio

Tarnynon (Ty-yuh-nuh) Onumonu (She/Her) is an emerging writer, performing and visual artist born and raised in the Jeffery Manor neighborhood on the southeast side of Chicago and is extremely proud of and humbled by her southside citizenship and West African lineage. Birthed from a Liberian mother and Igbo father whose families have both experienced extensive war trauma, she has been endowed with a diasporic experience in joy and pain that is atypical of most Americans. She draws from this to produce work, which is both specific in its autobiographical nature as well as global in its subject matter of love, trauma and disorientation over the span of time and reach of western colonization and global Black Femme cultural experience.
