Ntozke Shange


Last night I went to a program at Barnard College that honored the great elder and poet Ntozake Shange. I CANNOT stop thinking about what little bit I heard. We arrived a bit late to the performance and I had to step out for the last hour with Bean but what I did hear of the panel discussion was very inspiring.

First o all I have to mention that there is something about the Barnard campus that is just empowering. My sistercousin is an alum and now her sister is there now so I’ve had the pleasure of attending a few functions over the past years. Barnard is a women’s college and the women who have chosen to attend that school seem to enter and exit with loads of pride, ready to challenge and be challenged by what is happening in society. I’m not a Barnard alum but I definitely appreciate the contributions that many of them have contributed to our world. AND I’m so proud of my cousins to be part of that crew!!
