Her Pen is a Machete: The Art of Ntozake Shange

“In “Her Pen is a Machete: The Art of Ntozake Shange,” scholars, writers, and artists explore Ntozake Shange’s genre-defying achievements and ongoing influences. From her invention of the choreopoem to her revolutionary approaches to the body, movement, voice, music, dance, poetry, and prose, Shange’s work continues to create space for black women on the page and the stage, and to inspire new possibilities for art and writing.“

Her Pen is a Machete” features interviews with Soyica Diggs Colbert, Mecca Jamilah Sullivan, Vanessa K. Valdés, Jennifer DeVere Brody, and Alexis Pauline Gumbs. This video is included in The Scholar & Feminist Online issue 12.3-13.1, “The Worlds of Ntozake Shange,” available at sfonline.barnard.edu/worlds-of-ntozake-shange”
