Robin Nicole Tinnon, born on August 6, 1991, on the south-side of Chicago, Illinois is an activist, public intellectual, and writer who advocates for the oppressed. Currently a Prevention Coordinator for the Black Youth Alliance-WI, she strives to help black youth be positive participants of healthy relationships and discover black culture devoid of the consumerism viewpoint. As a wife and mother of two, she works endlessly to ensure that her teachings represent the historical foundation of true mentorship. She became a first-generation graduate of Kansas City Kansas Community College with an Associate Degree in Science and continued on to UW-Green Bay, obtaining a Bachelor degree in Integrative Leadership Studies with an emphasis of Psychology and Human Development. The daughter of a teen mother and sibling of six, Robin married and went on to explore several countries putting an emphasis on cultural understanding, exploration, personal agency and development. She believes that at the root of all oppression is both conscious and subconscious intent to do harm in order to reason with darkness. Currently, writing the book Let Me be Here for You While You Stand Up for Yourself, she asserts that there is no current curriculum written that gives a realistic view of her coined term ‘African Americanism’. This book discusses race, culture, and spirituality as it all comes together to form the black experience. As a passionate community activist, she intends for her work to touch the lives of many and bring homage to those living within the margins of race, class, and gender. Robin Tinnon is shifting the narrative of black lives by advocating for the future of black youth, engaging them to develop healthy and positive black identities.
