    She is certainly doing a wonderful thing by making sure that she appeals to white people by the title alone! We still "colored", we still Negro...we still *****....everything but what we really are! If this wasn't so funny I'd still be laughing!

    Redemption means to buy back.
    What was initially sold and to whom?

    Belive me she is not trying to appeal to white people. Stacey Muhhamad is a very positive Black woman that is active in the community. I want to know whats so funny. And what are you? Other works include.

    Hopefully, this provides some clarity relating to the Title:


    "For Colored Boys" is soul-stirring dramatic web series written and directed by award-winning filmmaker Stacey Muhammad. Seven seasons of "For Colored Boys" tell stories about seven Black men who are faced with redemption, truth, love, fear, hope, endings, and new beginnings. The web series is inspired by the critically-acclaimed 1975 choreopoem 'For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf' by Ntozake Shange.

    It appears the term is being used from the first four explanations, and not so much "to buy back," as you noted:
