Join us for a one-time-only screening of this artful meditation on the powerful themes Toni Morrison has confronted throughout her literary career. The Nobel prize-winning author leads an assembly of her peers, critics and colleagues on an exploration of race, history, America and the human condition. When she saw the finished film, she told filmmaker Timothy Greenfield-Sanders: "I like her." We suspect you will too.
