Toni Morrison’s work focused on African American life and culture, and she dominated an industry in which depictions of black life were often limited and rooted in stereotype…
And generations of black female writers, no matter their genre, have been touched by her. “Morrison is such a monumental figure, that there is no way you could write about black women’s experiences without taking her into account,” he said.
She showed, by example, the validity of black, female lives. And through her many “once upon a times,” Morrison’s expansive vision of black humanity now resonates around the globe.”
