Special Tribute: Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am
Special Tribute Screening—one night only!
On August 6, 2019, we lost Toni Morrison, the history-making Nobel Prize-winning author whose beloved, best-selling work made space for stories about the African American experience. Released shortly before her death, Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am explores the life and worlds of the incomparable storyteller who spent her career penning rich, ambitious novels about race, history, and the human condition—and helped elevate the voices of other marginalized writers along the way. Through a treasure trove of archival material and interviews with Oprah Winfrey, Angela Davis, and the trailblazer herself, this fittingly profound doc explores everything from Toni’s famed books—including The Bluest Eye and Song of Solomon—and the inspiration behind her imaginative power and visionary force.
