ATLANTA (PRWEB) May 21, 2020
Four-time New York Times bestselling author Wahida Clark, aka, “The Queen of Street Lit,” joins forces with renowned actress Kim Coles to co-host “Monologue Theater with Wahida Clark,” featuring legendary actor/director Bill Duke.
The event will raise awareness and funds for the PSD COVID-19 Relief Fund for first responders, essential workers and underserved residents impacted by the pandemic in New Jersey and Georgia.
The event is directed by Antonio Faison and will be LIVE on Instagram at instagram.com/wahidaclark on May, 24th, from 3:00 – 8:00 p.m. EST. This Dance and De-stress Live Party also features DJ Suss One and DJ Easy Mo Bee who will be playing music while announcing this important Call to Action.
Actors around the globe will have the chance to participate in the live event by using the hashtag #MonologueTheaterwithWahida, which incorporates dialogue from the characters in Clark’s popular Thug Love Book Series.
The event is produced in association with Clark’s non-profit organization, Prodigal Sons & Daughters (PSD) for its “PSD COVID-19 Takedown” initiative.
PSD expresses its gratitude to the Atlanta Hawks for recent donations made to the non-profit for its COVID-19 fundraising efforts.
Wahida Clark, aka the “Queen of Street Lit,” went from prisoner to 4-time New York Times bestselling author and leading urban publisher who has sold millions of books.
Clark is also the vice president of the non-profit Prodigal Sons and Daughters Redirection Services (PSD), which offers proven rehabilitation and has a focused mission to pursue all intelligent means at their disposal to assist socially disadvantaged persons, communities and nations.
Clark says, “We created the ‘Monologue Theater with Wahida Clark’ event to raise awareness and funds for the PSD COVID-19 Relief Fund, which focuses on the ‘3 Ts’: Testing, Tracing and Treatment. We believe these are the three pillars that will help us survive this pandemic. We’ll be going into underserved hot spots to support the people who need it most.”
The “3 T’s” are a pathway to supporting residents who don’t have the means to get help, including those incarcerated in our jails and prisons. The mission of the initiative is for increased:
- Testing – PSD will be making test kits available via its mobile clinic.
- Tracing – By identifying those who test positive, PSD will help the Department of Health trace origins of the virus and limit the spread of COVID-19.
- Treatment – PSD will be ensuring that underserved communities are getting the appropriate access to resources and treatment. This also includes mental health support for people who are struggling from anxiety and mental health issues. (According to Newsweek, “Alcoholic beverage sales rose by 55% in late March, compared to sales in 2019.”)
Clark adds, “There are so many people who don’t have access to the necessary resources or support to get through this pandemic, so it’s our mission at Prodigal Sons & Daughters to support as many people in our communities as possible.”
