The Honey Pot Performance Support Campaign seeks to raise $3,000 toward our emerging organization’s general operating expenses and current productions. All contributions will go towards daily operations (things like studio space!), communications (a new website!), and production costs (stuff like venue rental, costumes, sound and lights!) for our current performance works in development: The Ladies Ring Shout and The Sweet Goddess Project. We appreciate every contribution no matter how large or small. Every bit counts! Help Honey Pot Performance build! Make your donation today.

From The Color Purple to Precious to The Help, what’s missing in representations of Black women in popular culture today? In Ladies Ring Shout–a performance using a combination of spoken word, movement and original soundtrack–Felicia Holman, Abra Johnson and Meida McNeal explore portrayals of women of color in popular culture and offer their own poignant and personal stories of resistance in this three-woman show. “There’s potency within this range,” says TimeOut Magazine. “It’s as if the trio’s work is fundamentally a tug-of-war between emotional and intellectual investigation.” Join us for this special multi-media performance and conversation.
Sponsored by The Public Square, a program of the Illinois Humanities Council, this event is free and open to the public. Co-sponsored by Chicago Foundation for Women’s African American Leadership Council and U Chicago’s Center for the Study of Race, Culture and Politics.
