This has been quite the month for women of color.  With Sesame Street embracing natural hair, to Willow Smith whipping her hair back & forth, the Black Girls Rock awards, and now the premier of “For Colored Girls” (from the screenplay “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf” by Author Ntozake Shange) directed by Tyler Perry.  Stars were out in full force at the premier in New York at the Ziegfeld Theatre.   I’m actually really excited to go see this movie…from the looks of the trailer I can see why it has Oscar buzz.  The film is set to be released November 5th and I can’t wait.
