When we were fairing the cold and snow to rehearse this beautiful, meaningful and timely piece; tired as Hell from our day jobs, our civilian lives, and just an overwhelming overall “sick and tired of being sick and tired”, from the insurmountable bs we endure daily; I’m certain I can speak for my sisters in saying, we just wanted to share this work at this time, to do our part as conscious artists to affect change. We hoped to bring “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When The Rainbow Is Enuf” to our beloved city to be a part of a long awaited conversation, and in some cases to initiate the conversation. We spoke of hoping that at least one person would walk away changed by the experience, that is this play. For us that would serve as the marker that all of our efforts were indeed worthwhile....But to have so many people, from various walks of life come to us after each show with tears in their eyes. I’d be lying if I said that I envisioned that. And I definitely did not imagine the wonderfully glowing reviews of the press. Especially not the Boston Globe.
This journey, with this beautiful group of women has been nothing but an honor and a privilege. We leave our hearts on that stage, sharing bits and pieces of our individual stories, and that of our collective story, as Colored Girls, nationally and internationally, of both the past and present... I am grateful and humbled by all that have come to share the journey with us. And for those who haven’t yet, there is still time to join us🌈🌈🌈 #blackexcellence#blackgirlmagic#bostonglobe#ladyingreen#forcoloredgirlswhohaveconsideredsuicidewhentherainbowisenuf#queen#feminism#actress#songstress#activist
Public Service Announcement-
I AM A BLACK WOMAN
I AM A BLACK WOMAN THAT HAPPENS TO HAVE LIGHT COMPLECTED SKIN
I , JUST LIKE YOU, DID NOT HAVE A CHOICE IN THE MATTER.
WHEN I EMERGED FROM MY MOTHERS WOMB- THIS IS THE SKIN I WAS IN. PERIOD.
While I did not choose my color, AS A BLACK WOMAN, What I do choose, is to stand in solidarity; acknowledging the grace, power and beauty of us ALL; in ALL of our varied skin tones, hair colors and textures, eye colors, body types, sexual orientations, socio-economic status, nationalities, ethnicities, education levels, decisions about what we choose to do with our bodies, religious/spiritual beliefs, and any other ridiculous label used to bind and ultimately disempower us. Especially, an asinine construct, as stupid and barbaric, as using our skin color as a means to divide and conquer.
While I fully understand and am well versed in the the history and sick psychology of slavery and colonialism, I am soooo tired of us (black women and men)continuing to perpetuate colorism amongst ourselves. My black is beautiful and so is that of my sisters that are darker or lighter than I. However, if I posted memes celebrating light skin and proclaimed that “light skinned women are beautiful”, I’m sure I’d be met with a bunch of hate mail in my inbox. Yet, when the inverse is posted, it’s touted as an affirmation of our cultural identity and a celebration of our beauty. News flash, our skin came in a miriad of colors, even before we were ripped from the bosom of Mother Africa; And they should all be celebrated as majestic. Simply, because they are.
Additionally, if in fact, my light complexion is a result of the rape of our ancestral mothers, and this is a fact that you are well aware of, Then why is there any dissension amongst US?
We can continue down this path and maintain this division amongst ourselves. We can continue to pick each other apart because we’re too much of this or not enough of that. Or, maybe, just maybe, we can make the conscious decision to reject every form of brainwashing, mental slavery, all of the “isms”, patriarchy and every other form of insanity that has continually robbed us of the ability to stand united,
My Love, My Friend, My True Rider, My Teacher, My Buddy, My Homegirl, Mi Amiga, My Mentor, My Prayer Warrior, My Number One Cheerleader, My Legit Day One, My Prototype, My Queen, My MAMA!! I could go on and on Forever about the depth of my #love And #admiration For this amazing #woman and even then it wouldn’t express the truest depths of my heart. Please join me in wishing The #goddess The Happiest Of Happy Birthdays! I Adore you Mommy and love you to the moon and back❤️❤️❤️#queen#mom#happybirthday#unconditionallove#divinefeminine
