Trampolines, Mormons, and Braids: Lessons from Growing up Black in Utah

About The Show

Trampolines, Mormons, and Braids is a true story about a childhood adventure gone wrong, family dynamics, growing up black in Utah in the 90s, and what it means to be an outsider - all brought to life with audio clips, photos, and plenty of hijinks.
