For Colored Girls

Tyler Perry's passion project, adapted from Ntozake Shange's groundbreaking stage play, brought together an ensemble cast including Janet Jackson, Whoopi Goldberg, Phylicia Rashad, Thandie Newton, Loretta Devine, Anika Noni Rose, Kimberly Elise, and Kerry Washington. Though critical response was mixed, many supported Perry's determination to revive this landmark work of African-American literature at the box office.
