E. Patrick Johnson, Professor, Chair, and Director of Graduate Studies in
the Department of Performance Studies and Professor of African American
Studies at Northwestern University, will be visiting *Simmons College* (300
The Fenway, Boston, 02115) on* February 16, 2011 *for a performance. The
event will take place in the* Linda K. Paresky Conference Center at 4:30 pm*
.

This dramatic reading is based on the oral histories collected in Johnson's
book,* Sweet Tea: Black Gay Men of the South*--An Oral History, published by
the University of North Carolina Press. The oral histories are from black
gay men who were born, raised, and continue to live in the South and range
in age from 19 to 93. This performance covers the following topics: coming
of age in the South, religion, sex, transgenderism, love stories, and coming
out.  Johnson embodies these and others' stories in the show.

The event is* free* of charge and open to all ages. Parking will be
available in the Simmons College parking garage for a minimal fee.
