Yohance Lacour

Yohance Lacour (he/him) is a writer from the South side who's committed to telling stories of Black Chicago from the ground.

He's always had feet in multiple worlds, and has been a playwright, a journalist, and an entrepreneur. These varied experiences have served to provide a unique perspective around topics that generally prove to be polarizing and divisive in today's society. After serving a decade-long sentence in federal prison, he returned home in 2017 to resume his tradition of Black storytelling. He currently runs the luxury leather label Y.J. Lacour and was recently featured in Smithsonian Magazine.
