Community Access Speaker Series with Ntozake Shange and Ifa Bayeza

| June 23, 2010 | 0 Comments

Real life sisters Ntozake Shange and Ifa Bayeza will read selections from published and unpublished short works related to family, personal recovery and community healing.

Shange is author of the landmark theater work For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf, which is headed to Broadway again with a new contemporized script and is being adapted for a film version directed by Tyler Perry.

Bayeza’s newest play, The Ballad of Emmett Till, is the winner of the 2008 Edgar Award and a 2007 Eugene O’Neill Playwrights Conference fellowship.

The sisters have a new novel due out this September—Some Sing, Some Cry—their first co-writing effort, an epic story that traces the journey of one family from enslavement to the dawn of the 21st century.
