another throwback: bag lady

posting videos is making me rather happy of late. this weekend, i had a distinct urge to hear a lot of erykah badu. so i decided i'd put the genius bag lady video here. the concept for the video is based on ntozake shange's seminal choreopoem for colored girls who have considered suicide/when the rainbow is enuff, which enjoyed a good long run on broadway, won lots of awards, made ms. shange famous, and continues to be put up by theater groups everywhere. enjoy this one, too.
