Description

Remembering novelist, essayist, editor, Nobel Laureate, professor, and great American thinker Toni Morrison. The Pieces I Am offers an artful and intimate meditation on the life and works of Morrison. 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, 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.
