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
