April 21st: “Sorry”

“Sorry” from “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf” by ntozake shange


I loved this is high school when I first read it (my favorite part of the play, though, was the story about the girl who read the biography of Toussaint Louverture), and I still love it. I probably love it more now, on account of the guys who have told me “sorry” in between then and now.

  1. Oh, man. Another one of my favorites. I actually read this aloud in my college Voice and Diction class, just because it has such irresistible music to it. I have probably never looked so white, and awkward, in my life.
