Where My Girls At? Micia Mosely
June 8 & 9, 7:00pm
Micia Mosely’s first solo show reveals the issues that connect and separate myriad Black women’s communities in the Bay Area. Through different personas, Mosely portrays the diversity of Black lesbian experiences, challenging the notion that there is only one way to be Black or Queer in the 21st century. Each performance is unique, as Mosely’s characters engage with the audience in an improvised Question & Answer segment. Fresh, hilarious, and insightful, this show is not to be missed.
