At a time when there were few stories about women of color, poet-activist-novelist-playwright Shange penned a now-seminal and treasured work of American Theatre. Seven African American women, each identified solely by a color, traverse class, gender, sexuality, and geography in this highly personal ‘choreo-poem.’ “Remarkable,” says The New York Times, “a joyous celebration” that weaves word and dance into something genuinely special, something to “be savored and treasured.”
