Tallahassee, FL - Every woman has a story to tell and on Saturday, September 18, Sharon McGhee will perform her stories in The Pocketbook Monologue as part of Florida A&M University’s (FAMU) Health Sexpectations – an HIV prevention campaign. The event will begin at 7 p.m. in the Grand Ballroom. The general public is invited and admission is free.
The Pocketbook Monologue is a fun, entertaining and provocative dialogue that allows women of color to address issues that are relevant to women, their sexual relationships and the HIV/AIDS epidemic that has affected black women. The play stems from McGhee’s book “The Pocketbook Monologue,” a collection of stories from women who shared their stories of intimacy and the responsibilities that goes along with it.
The play emphasizes that every woman has a story to be shared and has taken stage in sold-out houses in New York, N.Y., Chicago, Ill. and Milwaukee, Wis. Last year, The Pocketbook Monologue was featured on Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
