For Colored Girls who have Considered Suicide when the Rainbow is Enuf

Ntozake Shange's first work, tells the stories of seven women who have suffered oppression in a racist and sexist society.  The choreopoem is an innovative combination of poetry, drama, music, and dance.  The seven women are not named; they are meant to stand for the women who make up the rainbow.  Each tells her own story.  The stories are interwoven together.  As the women tell their stories, they reflect on what it means to be a woman of color, what chances and choices they have.
