2020 Political Film Series – "Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am"

College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences

Get ready for another semester of exciting films in the Political Film Series, sponsored by the AUM College of Liberal Arts & Social Sciences. All films will begin at 7 p.m. in Goodwyn Hall 109 with an introduction to the film subject by an AUM faculty member. Audience discussion follows the screening. The events are all free and open to the public; complimentary popcorn and soda is served.

This intimate portrayal of the late Toni Morrison provides the audience with deep insights into her career as a writer and as an editor, the personal experiences that shaped her career starting with her childhood in a working class neighborhood in Lorain, Ohio and culminating in 1993 when she won the Nobel Prize for literature, an honor that has never been bestowed on an African American writer. “’Pieces’ is not a traditional biography, but instead tracks an evolution: from literary iconoclast to stateswoman.” Washington Post.
