The Schomburg Center Literary Festival presents an advance screening of the documentary Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am. The film offers an artful and intimate meditation on the life and works of the acclaimed novelist.
From her childhood in the steel town of Lorain, Ohio to ‘70s-era book tours with Muhammad Ali, from the front lines with Angela Davis to her own riverfront writing room, Toni Morrison leads an assembly of her peers, critics and colleagues on an exploration of race, America, history and the human condition as seen through the prism of her own literature.
A talkback following the film will feature authors Jacqueline Woodson (Brown Girl Dreaming, Another Brooklyn), LaShonda Katrice Barnett (Jam on the Vine), Darnell Moore (No Ashes in the Fire), and filmmaker Timothy Greenfield-Sanders.
