Luminary author, scholar, Pulitzer and Nobel prize-winner Toni Morrison presents this final compilation of speeches she gave throughout her career, loosely cataloged in three sections. In addition to writings about art, imagination, globalism and the experience of the “other,” Morrison explores the persistent conflicts of race in United States’ history, literature and within her own writing process. Morrison, a gifted original thinker and critic, died in August 2019 at age 88. Readers interested in her literary and intellectual legacy will appreciate these insights from a writer in full command of her subjects and her language.
