Please help us reach our GOAL! To make this Show a Reality! Thank you for your consideration to give to this production of, "The Crooked Room" With your support our One-Woman-Show WILL be a reality in San Francisco In her own words, Jerrie Johnson, taps into the magic that is inherent to the  Black Womanhood, the original woman, the mystified, the mythical, the  provocative, and the erotic. She is interested in the dichotomy between Black  Joy and the Generational trauma that makes joy an act of resistance.  Specifically, how the Black woman’s responsibilities to her community can  create dissonance in her struggle for liberation and self-actualization. How  can she explore weakness in a place that expects her to be strong? Is the  Black woman being robbed of her duality by her community unconsciously  by way of images being fed to them by the patriarchal structure in which we  participate? She wants to explore this through some pre-colonial Afro-indigenous  ritual practices and performance styles, in order to steep this piece in a  truthFULLNESS that may otherwise be restricted by solely exploring through  a western lens. With that said, she doesn't have all the answers, she is a  collaborator. She needs eyes and ears and sounds that don’t come from my body, she needs voices from places that she has never been in order for this to expand  beyond the realms of my consciousness. And she needs you, witnesses to go on this journey with her   Please Consider making a donation to our Production premiering at the African American Art & Culture Complex this June 28th & 29th
