A poet, performance artist, playwright and novelist, Ntozake Shange's stylistic innovations in drama, poetry and fiction and attention to the untold lives of black women have made her an influential figure throughout American arts and in Feminist history. In a unique collaboration between Barnard, the Schomburg Center for Black Culture and the International Center for Photography, and with support by the Mellon funded "Barnard Teaches" grant, this year long seminar provides an in-depth exploration of Shange's work and milieu as well as an introduction to digital tools, public research and archival practice.
