EPISODE #8 | Markel Mosley

Pronouns: He/Him

When TMI Project storyteller Markel Mosley was a kid, he and his older brother were sent to live with their grandparents because his parents could no longer care for them. Markel explores some painful and some joyful memories from his past through a unique lens in his touching and often funny story.

My grandfather uses the word manish, eats head cheese and makes my brother and I wear dress shirts and suspenders to school. My brother takes his off, I keep mine on.
