"For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf" by poet/playwright Ntozake Shange, is a feminist piece written for seven female actors that are represented in the text as colors of the rainbow. The title bears a dual meaning, "colored" representing both race and the colors of the rainbow. These women invite us into their worlds of heartache, heartbreak, love, hate, depression and oppression. The reader is taken into the past, and hurled fiercely into the future; as these women overcome their obstacles, by finding God in herself. This piece is not to be mistaken for male bashing. It is more an empowerment piece for women of all races.
This document serves, as the supporting material for the thesis presentation of "For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf" by Ntozake Shange. I will demonstrate the importance of language, as it relates to works of literature streaming from the African-American experience; illuminating the realm of African-American playwrights, poets, and authors, and their usage of language as an expression of their culture.
