For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide/When the Rainbow Is Enuf (6/25)

This choreopoem, which was made into a film by Tyler Perry, is still relevant more than 40 years after publication. This book conveys the plight, struggles, triumphs, fears, internal and interpersonal struggles of black women across the diaspora.

Readers learn the impact of rape, abortion, loss, sexual exploitation, isolation and domestic violence on black women’s mind, bodies and souls. Feminists cannot call themselves such without this book which reveals the need for intersectionality. Also, this book and its performances on Broadway were the original #TimesUp and #MeToo movements.
