The Project

The Magic of Ntozake Shange

The Worlds of Ntozake Shange connects you to the numerous explorations of Ntozake Shange, her work, and her legacy at Barnard College.

The Shange Magic Project takes up Ntozake’s fierce, enabling desire to speak with current and future generations of Barnard graduates: for eighteen months, we will infuse the campus with the spirit of her life, works and legacy.

A project by the Africana Studies Program & the Barnard Library and Academic Information Services.
