Sweet Tea

Sweet Tea: Black Gay Men of the South by E. Patrick Johnson

E. Patrick Johnson will perform "Sweet Tea," his one-man show about black gay men in the South, at the Adams House Pool Theatre at Harvard University. "Sweet Tea" is a beautiful, important work of theatre that addresses such themes as the Church, AIDS, and family. 

The performance is free and open to all. Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis.


E. Patrick Johnson, the Carlos Montezuma Professor of African American Studies and Performance Studies at Northwestern University, is a playwright, actor, performance scholar, and queer theorist. The show "Sweet Tea" is based on Johnson’s ethnographic fieldwork with black gay men in the South (which Johnson also published as the book Sweet Tea: Black Gay Men in the South).

This performance is supported by Adams House, the Department of African and African American Studies, the Hutchins Center, the Office of BGLTQ Student Life, the Open Gate, the Program of Studies in Women, Gender, and Sexuality, and the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study.
