We often witness history in the making without realizing it. In Chicago, it damn near happens every day. At These Days we strive to document these subtle moments and the artists that create them.

Timestamps is a new video series set on capturing the nascent careers of creatives adding to the city's cultural legacy. A snapshot of the now meant for future dissection and appreciation.

For our second episode we talk about the process of writing a cohesive book, finding mentors and deciding which poems to perform with the always hilarious — writer, educator and performer — Raych Jackson. Recorded back on a cloudless 82° afternoon August 10th, 2019 at 1:22PM.

Raych's new book of poems 'Even the Saints Audition' is out now! Order yourself a copy via Button Poetry. Follow along with Raych Instagram and Twitter (you won’t regret it!).
