Moving and profound. Look for this one to be front and center come Oscar time.

Before each screening, we will take time to honor Toni Morrison by asking the audience to share quotes and memories. Please bring something to share!

An artful and intimate meditation on the life and works of the acclaimed novelist. 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. Woven together with a rich collection of art, history, literature, and personality, the film includes discussions about her 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.

Directed by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders.
