An illustrated poster for the choreopoem, “for colored girls who have considered suicide / when the rainbow is enuf,” by Ntosake Shange, featuring a painted, three quarters profile, upper body portrait of a young woman wearing a yellow head scarf, yellow tank top and gold and feather earrings. The portrait is of Ntozake Shange. She is standing against a white tile subway wall which has a single red tile stripe at the base of the wall. The main poster text is written in rainbow-colored, cursive, paint brushstrokes with simulated paint drips, and text reads, [For / Colored / Girls / who have / Considered / Suicide / When / The / Rain- / bow / is / Enuf]. In the top right corner is a box painted to appear like small tiles with white text against a dark red background that reads, [BOOTH THEATRE / 222 W. 45TH ST.] followed by a white, right pointing arrow. The artist's signature is in that bottom right corner, against a white tile.
