for those lucky enough to be in New York this week (and not afraid of snow)


Don’t miss these two amazing events with E. Patrick
Johnson, oral historian, performance artist, Chair of the
Department of Performance Studies and Professor in the
Department of African American Studies at Northwestern
University:
 
PERFORMANCE at CUNY Graduate Center: "Pouring Tea:
Black Gay Men of the South Tell Their Tales," a one-
person show in which Johnson embodies the stories of
some of the men he interviewed for his book Sweet Tea:
Black Gay Men of the South. Sweet Tea is based on
conversations with more than 70 black gay men, ranging
in age from 19 to 93, who were born, raised, and
continue to live in the southern U.S. For video excerpts
