Contemporary writers pay homage to the life and work of Toni Morrison, 50 years since the publication of The Bluest Eye.
Featuring performances, readings and tributes from special guests, this evening is a joyful response to Morrison’s legacy.
In her debut, The Bluest Eye, published in 1970, Morrison depicted an 11-year-old black girl’s mental disintegration. The novel asks vital questions about race, gender and class that are more relevant today than ever.
Morrison received the Pulitzer Prize for her novel Beloved in 1988, and the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1993. She died in August 2019.
