In Celebration of Toni Morrison: Reflecting on a Legend with San Diego Scholars

event_title

The passing of Nobel laureate, Toni Morrison, in August 2019, has been felt as an irreplaceable loss by many who were inspired by the power and beauty of her writing, her advocacy for Black writers, and the incisive and uncompromising commentary on race in the United States in her novels, essays and interviews. Join us for a panel of scholars who will read from Toni Morrisons works and reflect on her impact. This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.

Visit the exhibit, located in the west wing on the main floor of Geisel Library, to savor Toni Morrison’s words, and to learn more about her many critically acclaimed works and her role as an editor of iconic African American literature. The exhibit will be on display from October 1 – December 20, 2019.
