This week, the InnovateHER Podcast talks with some of the cast and crew of For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide/When the Rainbow is Enuf about their experiences crafting a riveting piece of theater. 

Written by Ntozake Shange and with direction by Khanisha Foster and choreography by Bridgette Dunn-Korpela, For Colored Girls is a series of vignette-style stories told by black women about the joy and heartbreak they have experienced–illuminating the histories that have shaped them in a society that too often fails to acknowledge and honor them.

We hear from Assistant Director Bree Patterson and actors Teonna Wesley and Meredith Noël on their experience working on the show, everything from the power of movement in theater to their favorite memories from the show.
