The show For Colored Girls: Who Have Condisdered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf is about a sisterhood of seven women tell their stories through dramatic prose poetry, music, and movement. Told in vivid language, their experiences resound with fearless beauty and unity, despite exposing the unending challenges and oppressions that women of color face every day. Director Seret Scott (Native Son) returns to playwright Ntozake Shange‘s cherished work after performing as a member of the original Broadway cast from 1976-1978.
The Smart Museum current exhibition is Solidary & Solitary: The Joyner/Giuffrida Collection. The exhibition highlights the significant contribution that African-American artists have made on the evolution of visual art in the modern era
