Ntozake Shange is one of those authors where I may not remember exactly what she said, but I remember how it made me feel. The first book I read of hers was either For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide / When the Rainbow Is Enuf or Liliane. If I recall, the main character Liliane talked to a therapist throughout the story about her life. Then, I remembered watching Tyler Perry’s adaptation of For Colored Girls at Bowie State University. (The book was better). Not to mention Ntozake Shange’s personal journey of self-discovery is amazing. If you haven’t read her work, please do. For those who have read her books, what’s your favorite?
Roxanne Ridge writes for the youth. Not to mention, writing is peaceful.
