YWCHAC partners with
Sister to Sister: One in the Spirit
to present An Evening of Empowerment with Sheryl Lee Ralph in a one-woman performance, “Sometimes I Cry,” to be held on Saturday, June 14, 2014, at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, in Harlem, NY. “Sometimes I Cry” is a one-woman show, written and conceived by award winning actress and honored AIDS activist Sheryl Lee Ralph. This moving and provocative show was inspired by the real life stories of women infected and affected by HIV/AIDS. Ralph becomes each one of these characters, breathing life into them and their stories with every move and simple gesture.
This performance by Sheryl Lee Ralph, albeit presented through entertainment, shines light on a serious health issue that disproportionately affects communities of color and is essential to the Harlem community. Additionally the work aligns itself with Sister to Sister’s mission to “educate to empower” women of color. It is important to note, that although it has been reported that AIDS has remained stable in recent years, there’s an estimated 50,000 new HIV infections that continue to surface annually. The Center for Disease Control’s National Surveillance, continues to collect, analyze and provide information about new and existing cases of the HIV infection, including AIDS. Admission is $35 and includes show, reception, and gift, tickets and registration is available online by visiting www.ywchac.org.
