When the Rainbow is Enuf by Mara Licole Knits | This design was created to pay homage to the beautiful Ntozake Shange while highlighting her message that there is strength in individuals but when that strength is tested you can find love and even greater strength in communities that come together in solidarity. Using a rainbow as a brilliant analogy for community Shange gives us a glimpse into the importance of each individual color, as they are personified in the choreopoem, and the awe created when they bind together. Let’s celebrate Ntozake’s timeless message as we cast on When the Rainbow is Enuf.
