FEBRUARY 19, 2020                  Happy Birthday, Toni Morrison

Join us at The Baobab Cultural Center for an evening screening of In Black and White: VOL. 3: Toni Morrison.

 

"In Black and White is the first video series devoted to the life and work of contemporary African American authors. Toni Morrison explains her view of why 'American literature is incoherent without the contribution of African American writers.'"- (California Newsreel)

After the screening, enjoy a facilitated roundtable conversation with special guests about the artistic process, art for healing cultural trauma and the life and work of Toni Morrison.

Following the discussion, we will head next door to Writers & Books for a reception.
