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 gay, black men who were born, raised and continue to live in the south and range from age 19 to 93. This performance covers the following topics: Coming of age in the south, religion, transgenderism, love stories, and coming out. Johnson embodies these and others’ stories in the show. E. Patrick Johnson is the Carlos Montezuma Professor of Performance Studies and African American Studies at Northwestern University.
