Interview With Ntozake Shange

This is a gem of an interview with Ntozake Shange done by KETC in St. Louis where she grew up. Shange describes an upringing in an upper middleclass black neighborhood the likes of which no longer exists. She is nearly sixty years old and her slurred speech is due to a recent stroke but the choreopoem For Colored Girls . . . still resonates with audiences today.
