Total Fierceness: Ntozake Shange

The publicity mills are all abuzz about Tyler Perry's next movie...For Colored Girls.  However, what many (the younger generations) aren't aware of: the movie is based off a play by a phenomenal woman by the name of Ntozake Shange!  Ms. Ntozake is the playwright of the famous play, For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When The Rainbow is Enufit's also available in paperback.

My reason for this post?  To show yous fierce swag isn't just for the 20-something woman and Ms. Shange is proof at a helluva strong 62yrs of age!  Oh She's Fancy, Huh?! lol

Ntozake circa 1976
