Description

From acclaimed photographer and director Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, comes a groundbreaking profile of the legendary, Nobel Prize winning author Toni Morrison. As the film illustrates, Morrison was born in 1931 and has published some of American history's greatest literary works, including Tar Baby (81), Beloved (87), Paradise (97), and numerous other novels, short stories, plays and non-fiction pieces. The film features enlightening interviews from the public figures who were influenced by Morrison, including Oprah Winfrey and Viola Dave. Morrison herself also takes the floor, offering new insight into her journey as an author, activist, and leading force in literature and societal progress. Director Sander's film serves as a well-deserved tribute to Morrison that will surely help to bring awareness to the indelible mark she has had on the world of words, culture, and humanity itself.
