Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am
When novelist Toni Morrison first started her career in the 70s, she was one of the few who wrote for the underrepresented African American audience. Morrison quickly realized the power of words and refused to let the one’s she shared to be marginalized. After years of struggles with the establishment, Morrison’s words were finally raised and praised. The documentary tells the moving life story of the late Nobel prize-winning storyteller through archival material and candid interviews with Oprah Winfrey, Angela Davis, and Morrison herself.
