She dance with delicate steps, with courteous gestures with her hands gently touching her skirt. She is painted, placed earrings, bracelets and is regarded in an imaginary mirror. Then, on knees bathes, the water having the pleasure of touching her sweet body.The sweetness and harmony of the beautiful Oshun this ever-present in each of the decisions in our lives and its waters become calm our homes to remove from them any disturbance.

I’m an actress who occasionally does material by feminist black writers who give their impressions of black men. When I did ‘for colored girls who considered suicide when the rainbow is enuf,’ I was attacked outside the theater. It’s a writer’s perogative to write it as she sees it. But I know for myself, I’m ready to reinforce other ideas about the [black] family. I think it’s a tragic flaw in black literature and drama that so much responsibility is put upon the artist to present images that are positive. It’s unfair to dump all the responsibility onto the artist. On the other hand, it’s not fair that there aren’t enough projects being done that cover a wide span of black life. So any one project done takes on so much responsibility to present good images of our race. - Lynn Whitfield
