*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.
