This seminar provides an in-depth exploration of the work of Ntozake Shange. A poet, performance artist, playwright and novelist, Shange's stylistic innovations in drama, poetry and fiction and attention to the untold lives of black women have made her an influential figure throughout American arts. We will examine Shange's work in relationship to the Black Arts Movement and Black Feminist thought as well as from multidisciplinary perspectives. Texts will include Shange's for colored girls who have considered suicide when the rainbow is enuf; If I can cook, you know God can; Sassafrass, Cypress and Indigo and Spell #7. These works will be partnered with significant related texts such as Adrienne Kennedy's Funny House of a Negro and Michelle Wallace, Black Macho and the Myth of the Superwoman.
