Stories of love, empowerment, struggle, and loss represent sisterhood in a racist and sexist society.
for colored girls who have considered suicide/when the rainbow is enuf contains mature content—and this is intentional. With poems that explore losing one’s virginity, abortion, and love lost, and the use of explicit language, Shange wants to ensure that, if such important issues are not being discussed at home or under the guidance of careful mentorship, the production serves as a lesson, a cautionary tale, to those coming of age. In fact, Shange wrote the work with an intended audience in mind—12 year old girls. That said, guardians are encouraged to use their own discretion about whether or not it is appropriate for a younger audience.
