Toni Morrison (1931–2019) was an American professor, editor, and novelist celebrated for her achievements in highlighting racism in America. She was both a Pulitzer and Nobel Prize winner and inspired generations of Black writers. After her passing, she was inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame.
This inspirational book juxtaposes quotations, one to a page, drawn from Toni Morrison's entire body of work, both fiction and nonfiction--from The Bluest Eye to God Help the Child, from Playing in the Dark to The Source of Self-Regard--to tell a story of self-actualization.
