Description: For Colored Folks: An Adaptation pays homage to innovative African American writers. Incorporating monologues, movement, dialogue, and music, the end result is a cohesive piece that reveals the similarities between people, rather than romanticizing what makes us different.

“for colored folks…” is a hybrid-performance of two choreopoems: Ntozake Shange’s for colored girls who have considered suicide when the rainbow is enuf and Keith Antar Mason’s for black boys who have considered homicide when the streets were too much.

The end result is a cohesive choreopoem that explores love, loss, happiness, pain, and self-worth.
