Hall on Finding God in Ourselves: For Colored Girls at 40 via @Ebony

Kim F. Hall on the 40th anniversary of Ntozake Shange’s for colored girls:

“Seeing Trazana Beverly on our television years ago, I never imagined I’d become a college professor, much less that I would read for colored girls and other Shange works with hundreds of students. I certainly never dreamed that I would be privileged to carry on a Black feminist legacy: teaching with Ntozake Shange’s Collection at Barnard College, where students and researchers find inspiration and communion. Our Digital Shange project preserves and promotes Ntozake’s legacy of collaboration, transformation and excellence for future generations of women, especially those for whom the classroom is not enuf.”
