... the other Black experience

Ntozake Shange? Not.

*Update: this is not Ntozake change, but Racquel Brazer.
What do you know about Ntozake Shange? With her avant-garde sense of style, you could think this picture was taken recently, but it was actually taken decades ago.
She's playwright, a poet, a "self proclaimed black feminist - much of the content of her work addresses issues relating to race and feminism."
Her award-winning play 'For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf' (1975) was later turned into movies, as you guys probably know.

Hey Fam , about a week ago, team Afro-Punk thought we hit the jackpot. We got an amazing pic and seemingly reliable endorsement that the woman in it was playwright Ntozake Shange. But when the pic went up and then … y'all KNOW what happen BUT MYSTERY has been solved … and the answer is >>> http://ow.ly/a8Dj2

Word, Raquel is dope and she's a Virgo!  But I was like, whaaaa? 

Here's a young Ms. Shange, and she is dope as hell.  My mama took me to see For Colored Girls... when it came out in stage.  I never forgot that one.  The film although filled with amazing actresses, has nothing on the depth of pain, sorrow, life lessons and redemption on stage.  It was life changing.

Thanks for the clarification CHELSEA - Racquel is stunning but can we now get a real picture of Ntozake Shange from back in the day?

lmfao that actually is Racquel Brazer. She's a blogger, not Ntozake Shange. Peep the cheek piercings, this should give doubt to any speculation that it was taken decades ago as that is a more popular piercing in the US more recently.
