Lynn Whitfield and Alfre Woodard star in the 1982 television adaptation of Ntozake Shange‘s iconic feminist play “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf.”

The play gained notoriety during it’s on and off-Broadway run in the mid-late 70s’. A film adaptation of the play was made last year by controversial director Tyler Perry. After the 2010 film was made, Shange was quoted saying “I think he did a very fine job, although I’m not sure I would call it a finished film.”
