The next “Caffeinated Curation” — a routine pairing of books and beverages by @blueprintcoffee — features selections from @kranzbergarts Visual Experience Coordinator Alexis Rivierre (@alexisrivierre_art).
“for colored girls who have considered suicide/when the rainbow is enuf” by Ntozake Shange, a renowned poet, novelist, and playwright, is a commentary on what it means to be a woman of color in the twentieth century.
“Shange’s characters invite you to experience a timeless layered composition, through written song, and dance, amidst her poems that intertwine seven colorful narratives revealing all at once a beautiful tension between obstacles, trauma, and unity through a shared Black female experience,” Rivierre said.
Find this literary work among others by Shange on the shelves at High Low. And while you’re browsing, order this oat milk latte with vanilla & chocolate syrup, recommended by Rivierre.
