CGAC and Books & Books pay tribute to the memory of trailblazing American storyteller Toni Morrison with a special screening of Timothy Greenfield-Sanders’ artful and intimate documentary meditation on her life, her works and the powerful themes she has confronted through a literary career that earned her the Pulitzer and Nobel Prizes for Literature and the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Through the director’s elegant portrait-style interviews, Morrison leads an assembly of her peers, critics and colleagues on an exploration of race, history, America and the human condition.

National Book Award finalist, Edwidge Danticat, will reflect on receiving “the ancestral blessings” of her mentor following the screening.
