Ernestine Johnson is a compelling actress, performance poet and event host. She’s made appearances on network TV shows and theater performances in Los Angeles, California (where she was raised). She is also known in the spoken word community, infamous for being uncensored and untamed on the microphone, speaking on matters dear to the heart. Ernestine now resides in Atlanta, Georgia. She can be seen on GMC’s original stage play Sugar Momma’s and her latest film Reckless.
Fortunately Arsenio Hall had the good sense to bring this woman onto his show to perform one of her spoken word pieces. Take a listen and switch your mind from the identity politics of the day and understand a bit more about the politics of identity. Enjoy!
