Nobel Prize-winning author Toni Morrison (Song of Solomon, Beloved) has spent her life explaining the meaning of her life as a Black woman in the U.S. That discussion is national imperative, and this thoughtful, fact-filled documentary is a must-see for anyone who wants to understand the American experience in all its shameful yet hopeful complexity. Filmmaker/photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders (The Black List, The Latino List) hears from Morrison herself on the subject, as well as from activist Angela Davis, author Walter Mosley, actor Hilton Als, and writer Fran Lebowitz. A provocative combination of lit-crit and social commentary.
