A screening and panel
Wednesday, November 7
6 PM
James Room, 4th Floor Barnard Hall

The 2012-13 Africana Distinguished Alumna series honors Ntozake Shange ’70. A playwright, poet, and novelist of startling originality, Shange is best known for her 1975 Obie Award-winning play, For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf.  Following the screening of Tyler Perry’s acclaimed 2010 film version of the play, Ms. Shange speaks candidly about her groundbreaking work with Soyica Diggs Colbert, Assistant Professor of English at Dartmouth College and Monica Miller, Associate Professor of English at Barnard.

The celebration continues in February with The Worlds of Ntozake Shange Conference.
