An Evening with Ntozake Shange—SOLD OUT
brochure: evening with ntokake shange

As an educator, performer/director, and writer, Ntozake Shange has spent a lifetime creating works that explore what it means to be black and female in America. Her best-known and Obie Award–winning play, for colored girls who have considered suicide/when the rainbow is enuf, broke new theatrical ground in 1975 and continues to resonate with audiences today. Join us as she returns to her hometown for a night of poetry and reflection, with musical accompaniment.
