Non-Fiction

An artful and uplifting documentary on the life of the legendary storyteller and Nobel prize-winner. From her childhood in Lorain, OH to ’70s-era book tours with Muhammad Ali, from the front lines with Angela Davis to her riverfront writing room, Toni Morrison reflects on race, America, and the human condition as seen through the prism of her work. The film includes appearances by Hilton Als, Angela Davis, Fran Lebowitz, Walter Mosley, Sonia Sanchez and Oprah Winfrey. The screening will be followed by a talk-back with director, Timothy Greenfield-Sanders.
