Ntozake Shange, writer of For Colored Girls..., Dies

Recommended Posts

Before it was a movie directed by Tyler Perry (which got mixed reviews), For Colored Girls Who Considered Suicide/When the Rainbow Was Enuff was a revolutionary choreo-poem and theatrical performance by playwright, poet and feminist Ntozake Shange, who passed away this morning at the age of 70.

I knew that she had been unwell but read an interview done with her just last year where she appeared to be getting better.  Sadly, that wasn't to be. :(
