Even though the Ford Center was packed last night as the University closed out Black History Month, only one person could truly be heard.  

The black woman spoke slowly and softly as the audience sat below like grandchildren at story time. Author and playwright of many works including “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf,” Ntozake Shange was the special guest speaker of last night’s Black History Month keynote. Following the event, Shange signed copies of her books in the foyer of the Ford Center.
