In Memoriam of Tonya Ingram

We are immensely saddened by the loss of our dear friend and collaborator, Tonya Ingram.

Tonya was such a bright light for all of us. As a poet and mental health advocate, Tonya’s impact will continue to resonate. We are so fortunate to have been able to learn, watch, and work with Tonya throughout the years. We have especially fond memories of working with Tonya as a member of Button’s 2014 National Poetry Slam and countless Get Lit Classic Slam filming crews.

We will continue to celebrate all of the magic that Tonya shared. Rest well, friend.
