LOS ANGELES (May 2, 2017) – AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) is proud to sponsor the Los Angeles Southwest College production of Tammi Mac’s “Bag Lady” on Saturday, May 6th and Sunday, May 7th . “Bag Lady” is a personal journey of local KJLH radio personality Tammi Mac, who wrote a one-woman play about her life and has performed the play over the past 3 years in Los Angeles. The play has won numerous NAACP Image Awards and is a nine-time winner at LAWEBFEST, the influential web series festival.
“Bag Lady” deals with multiple issues including childhood sexual abuse, substance abuse, intimate partner violence and black male/female relationships. At the conclusion of the play, there is an open dialogue between health professional experts, Tammi Mac and a woman living with HIV/AIDS. This dialogue focuses on healing and redemption and encouraging women who have experienced negative life experiences to go on with their lives.
The play will be performed at the Little Theatre on campus at Los Angeles Southwest College. The college is located on the corner of Western Avenue and Imperial Highway in South Los Angeles. These two performances are a kick-off for an AHF-sponsored national tour of the play in Cleveland, OH, Ft. Lauderdale, FL, and Atlanta, GA.
