Description

Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am is a documentary of the Nobel Laureate’s exploration of race, memory, and home in U.S. history. This film includes engrossing, sometimes moving interviews with the author and many others. It has been described as an “artful and intimate meditation on the legendary storyteller” (imbd.com), “a comprehensive, illuminating, and fittingly profound overview of her life and work” (rottentomatoes.com), and “an empowering impression of the woman behind [the novels]”: “We get a deeper appreciation of what it means for her to have published books and have them resonate with audiences. And we get a better sense of the behind-the-scenes struggles Morrison won against pay inequality and discrimination. Morrison’s legacy is more than just the titles on a reading list, and this documentary will likely help many viewers see just how monumental her accomplishments remain” (Monica Castillo on RogerEbert.com).  

Popcorn and drinks will be available while viewing. After viewing the film, the audience can join a brief discussion.
