The Obie Award-Winning For Colored Girls

The late playwright Ntozake Shange pioneered the term 'choreopoem' through her poignant, emotional and powerful collection of poetic monologues. Depicting the sometimes painful reality of experiencing life as a woman of color, For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide/When the Rainbow Is Enuf tells tales of survival and celebrates sisterhood.

Told through touching personal narratives, For Colored Girls features the stories of various women identified by a single color. The narratives are performed as poems presented with choreography and tackle themes relating to love, survival, loss and power.

Ntozake Shange was a black feminist and writer who used art as a way of speaking on race, feminism and black power.
