Not One of Us

The murder of George Floyd inspired my latest solo performance piece, exploring the intersection of race, class, privilege and gender in my life.  The work addresses systemic racism, including medical discrepancies as I experienced them, in medical school at Yale, on an OB-GYN rotation in Lagos, Nigeria, in training in San Francisco and finally as a stroke patient!

Not One of Us 


 “Bold and Provocative.”  

"Spectacular!”    "Brilliant!"   “Beautiful!”

"Loved and was so moved.”  "Deft, spare." "Transporting."    “Inspiring!”

"Thank you for an enchanting tale told brilliantly."

 "I hope your performance gets broadcast to a much wider audience as such consciousness raising is necessary to enable more parity, trust and confidence between patients and doctors, healthcare & front line workers, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, sex & gender preference, etc."
