Starting Your Dreams Later In Life and Embracing the Detour

I know it's been a while since I've posted anything but that's because of my job. I'm working as a reporter covering Oakland and I host an arts segment on the radio where I get to interview amazing artists from around the Bay Area. Plus I'm publicizing my book and building my speaking career! 
You know what's funny? I thought this would all happen by the time I was 27-30.  Nope. That wasn't God's plan for me. I'm finally beginning to do the things I've wanted to do and I'm almost 40 years old. Some people reading this who are 40 will say 40 is still young.

Women and Sexual Empowerment Series
The cast of 'The V Monologues: A Black Woman’s Perspective'


Tracie Collins
The V Monolgues: A Black Woman's Perspective
 
Our Women and Sexual Empowerment Series continues with a look at a new play that’s arousing interests, “The V Monologues: A Black Woman’s Interpretation.” Tracie Collins is the show’s writer, director and producer. It is derived from Eve Ensler’s groundbreaking production “The Vagina Monologues.” Tracie has worked in theater most of her life and and produced a number of shows. This is her first time in the director’s chair.

 You can see “The V Monolgues” this Saturday, October 19th at the Malonga Casquelord Theater in Oakland, Calif.

 I spoke with Tracie, a charming actress from the play named Renee Wilson; and the play’s narrator—retired San Francisco news anchor Dana King. I never thought that I'd be discussing vaginas with a journalist I admired as a teen, but it was a fun woman-to-woman conversation.

All three of these conversations  were so real and I loved every second of them.

 Now let’s talk about vaginas! Listen here or below.
