A budding Poet and Writer, as early as the third grade when he composed his very first poem, Florida raised writer Anthony Arnold fell in love with words finding them to be a comfort and mainstay throughout his life.
Raised to be a reader by his Grandmother, he soon developed a keen awareness and love for Black History. He has a particular gift in this genre although he is one of the most versatile Poets of his generation.
He believes his ancestry and the legacy of those who came before him, gave their blood, sweat and tears to make it possible for him to live a life of freedom and liberation. He is saddened by the fact that it appears the current generation has little knowledge of and doesn’t seem to know or speak of Family History, especially Black History.
He hopes through his writing he is able to educate others more about the historical significance of the challenges African Americans as well as the contribution of African Americans throughout history.
Anthony Arnold has proudly retired from service in the US Air Force. During his career he was awarded numerous medals, including the Air Force Achievement Medal, The Air force Commendation medal, the Meritorious Service Medal and many more.
