Playwright and poet Ntozake Shange ’70 has been a defining voice of African American experience since the production of her Obie Award winning masterwork, For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf, in 1975. To help kickoff the daylong conference, “The Worlds of Ntozake Shange,” Shange joins acclaimed dance artist Dianne McIntyre in a conversation about her life, work, and legacy. Barnard students round out the evening with performances of excerpts from Shange’s work, led by music producer and Barnard Center for Research on Women Alumnae Fellow Ebonie Smith ’07.
