Mental Health Awareness Month
The DC Poetry Project and the Consumer Council of the DC Chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness will co-sponsor a salute to playwright-poet-novelist Ntozake Shange. Ms. Shange has publicly shared her story about living with a mental disorder (www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pbh1TZ27rqI).
In her honor, there will be a showing of Ms. Shange's most acclaimed work, For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf (1982 version)
at the Watha T. Daniel/Shaw Neighborhood Library. The program will be facilitated by Sophie Ford Clark. Ms. Clark is the Executive Director of the Washington DC Chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
