In Wild Beauty, playwright, performer, poet, and novelist Ntozake Shange explores the many contradictions that people of color confront in their daily lives emotionally, psychologically, and politically. Through music and language, Shange approaches her material with delicacy and brutal honesty. We are left with a textured mosaic of what it means and how it feels to be a 21st century colored person who speaks English. Co-sponsored with Theatre.
