RBFS presents "Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am"

6 pm on Wednesday (August 21), 6 pm on Thursday (August 22), Cinema Art Theater, 17701 Dartmouth Drive in Dartmouth Plaza (behind the Lewes Wawa).

This artful and intimate documentary is a meditation on legendary storyteller Toni Morrison as she examines her life, her works, and the powerful themes confronted throughout her literary career.

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. Inspired to write because no one took a “little black girl” seriously, Morrison reflects on her lifelong deconstruction of the master narrative. Woven together with a rich collection of art, history, literature and personality, the film includes discussions about her many critically acclaimed works, including novels “The Bluest Eye,” “Sula” and “Song of Solomon,” her role as an editor of iconic African-American literature, and her time teaching at Princeton University.
