when the rainbow is enough


Tyler Perry is bringing another play to the big screen...but this time, on a topic that you usually do not hear too much about: colored girls who have considered suicide. Now Tyler Perry didn't actually write this play..it was written by someone named Ntozake Shange. I am actually quite interested in seeing how this plays out. Suicide is not really something that I think is thoroughly discussed in the black community, especially suicide of black women. I think that because black culture and black teachings encourage us to be strong as individuals and as a people, suicide always seems out of the question. But it does happen. Here is a monologue from the play

Jasmine Guy, who is known for her roles in black theater and also played Whitley of my fave show 'A Different World', is also heading the recent production of the play, along with other famous black female celebs
