Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am - New Documentary Film

Recommended Posts

 

Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am offers an artful and intimate meditation on the life and works of the legendary storyteller and Nobel prize-winner. From her childhood in the steel town of Lorain, Ohio to ‘70s-era book tours with Muhammad Ali, from the front lines with Angela Davis to her own riverfront writing room, Toni Morrison leads an assembly of her peers, critics and colleagues on an exploration of race, America, history and the human condition as seen through the prism of her own literature. Inspired to write because no one took a “little black girl” seriously, Morrison reflects on her lifelong deconstruction of the master narrative. Woven together with a rich collection of art, history, literature and personality, director Timothy Greenfield-Sanders’ film includes discussions about Morrison’s many critically acclaimed works, including novels The Bluest Eye, Sula, and Song of Solomon, her role as an editor of iconic African-American literature and her time teaching at Princeton University.

Thanks for taking the time to publicly comment Claudette.  While I know people are reading these posts, it is always helpful when readers comment, because it encourages others to do so, which in turn increases readership :-)   I don't understand the psychology, but this is what I've observed over the years.

I am grateful for the legendary,  Ms.Toni Morrison's  expression of  clear voice. Her words tell stories of realness; actual happenings that otherwise would not have been revealed. Ms. Morrison  has so eloquently plated the world of literature. I honor her introduction to the world of.....Wryte
