The Championing of Black Literary Works: Toni Morrison
Thu. 11 October | 1 PM
This lecture and Café Conversation focuses on the prize-winning fiction and literary criticism of Toni Morrison in order to explore her central role in the renaissance of black writing that has taken place over the past 40 years. In particular, the lecture examines the way her work has engaged the legacy of slavery in contemporary America and has allowed the ‘unspeakable’ to be spoken.
Followed by Café Conversation:
How valuable is historical fiction?
