True Blood's Tanya Wright (Kenya Jones) talks about Women's History Month and her own personal experiencesTanya Wright (Kenya Jones) kicked off Women’s History Month this afternoon by presenting at Beer’s Lecture Hall at East Stroudsburg University (ESU) in Pennsylvania. The ‘True Blood‘ deputy (and tough cookie) is speaking about her journey as a creative black woman in Hollywood, as well as how she learned to develop opportunities as an artist. Wright recently published her first book, “Butterfly Rising,” a story inspired by her own experiences with personal tragedy and transformation. The screen version of the book, which Wright wrote, directed and produced, will soon make its way to the independent film festival circuit.

Wright is currently holding a contest via her “Butterfly Rising” Facebook fan page to help others realize their dreams. 

ESU is planning to celebrate Women’s History Month with a series of events – all open to the public – and at no cost unless otherwise noted. For a schedule of events, please click here.
