The Pieces I Am-Our Human Family Documentary Series
January 30, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am offers an artful and intimate meditation on the life and works of the legendary storyteller and Nobel prize-winner. From her childhood in the steel town of Lorain, Ohio to ‘70s-era book tours with Muhammad Ali, from the front lines with Angela Davis to her own riverfront writing room, Toni Morrison leads an assembly of her peers, critics and colleagues on an exploration of race, America, history and the human condition as seen through the prism of her own literature.
About the documentary series:
This January and February the Lander Library presents a new documentary series called Our Human Family. What are the common elements of being human? Every person lives, dreams, thinks, hopes, struggles, grows, and dies. Appreciation, sympathy, and respect for each are possible despite differences of culture, philosophy, and personal choices.
