But not only that, pause for just a moment a think of the contributions these women individually have made to the world of entertainment whether stage, television, or film. It's what I sincerely call amazing! Yes, it's an overused word, especially in Hollywood, but it best describes the body of work these artists have contributed to the world even before "For Colored Girls."
In the video below, listen to the original writer of "For Colored Girls", Ntozake Shange, and the film's actresses share their insights on the play, the highly anticipated film, their individual roles, and Tyler Perry's direction while on the set in New York. There's great behind-the-scenes footage as well.
