TONI MORRISON: THE PIECES I AM

With an Introduction from Dr. Ednita Wright

Dr. Wright has taught Human Services and Teacher Education at Onondaga Community College since 2004. She holds a Ph.D. from the Maxwell School of Citizenship, Interdisciplinary Social Science Program at Syracuse University and a Master of Social Work from Syracuse University. She was also a panelist at Auburn Public Theater this June for Pride Week 2019’s “Meet Your LGBTQ Neighbor” Public Panel.

Dr. Wright will also lead a Q&A at the end of the film.

“The tone is generally celebratory and, given Morrison’s extraordinary impact on American letters, deservedly so.” – Chicago Reader 

This artful and intimate meditation on the legendary storyteller examines her life, her works and the powerful themes she has confronted throughout her literary career. Toni Morrison leads an assembly of her peers, critics and colleagues on an exploration of race, history, America and the human condition.
