This work by the author of For Colored Girls . . . is more of a play than her other choreopoems. It is about a young Black man who is trying to make it as a professional photographer and is surrounded by caricatures of Black people gone wrong. The exception is a girl friend who is a free and sovereign spirit. The young man's confidence is shattered when he is turned down for the grant he has counted on.
"Leaves the rainbow behind and deals with the stark and monochromatic spectrum of reality. Poetry runs through the play like veins of ebony, but it is blunted, bent and suffused. It is the play itself which is the poem." - Newsday
