WHM Spotlight: Toni Morrison

Today, our spotlight is on Toni Morrison.

Why? For her stellar accomplishments in the world of African American Literature.

Toni Morrison is a Nobel Prize and Pulitzer Prize-winning American novelist, editor, and professor.

Her novels are known for their epic themes, vivid dialogue, and richly detailed black characters. Among her best known novels are The Bluest Eye, Song of Solomon and Beloved.

Morrison began writing fiction as part of an informal group of poets and writers at Howard University who met to discuss their work. She went to one meeting with a short story about a black girl who longed to have blue eyes. The story later evolved into her first novel, The Bluest Eye (1970), which she wrote while raising two children and teaching at Howard.

Her list of works, nominations, and awards go on and on. We salute Ms. Morrison for her accomplishments and the dent she's made in our world. She's definitely worth a Women's History Month Spotlight!
