    Spill The Tea – Celebrating Pride

    Saturday, June 15, 2019

    Sweet Tea is supported by Annenberg School for Communication and Northwestern University Black Arts Initiative

    In our 2nd annual Pride program we give voice to the unique experiences of Southern Black Gay Men. E. Patrick Johnson will discuss his collection of oral histories for his book, Sweet Tea, and how he adapted the book to a stage play and then to a documentary film. Following the conversation he will perform an excerpt from the collected oral histories and from the forthcoming documentary film, Making Sweet Tea. Scott Poulson-Bryant moderates the discussion.

    The Illustrious Blacks aka ManchildBlack and Monstah Black bring their ethereal vocals, celestial sonics and earthly musical messages from the cosmos in a gravity defying performance and DJ set. The AfroFuturistic, Funky, Fly and Fierce duo fuse music, dance, theater & fashion as the main ingredients to expand minds, shake booty’s and encourage all to be bold, be brave and be you! #LiveTheHypeLife
