[By Kenton Rambsy]
Over the course of the past year, Toni Morrison has been a major focus for HBW blog posts as we seek to foster engaged scholarship on black novels. Morrison writer has become a totem of black literature since her 1970 novel debut with The Bluest Eye.
Since then, Morrison has been the recipient of a Pulitzer Prize (1987), a Nobel Prize in Literature (1993), and it was announced in 2012 that she would be the recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom—the highest award for a civilian.
Below, I have compiled a list of entries on Morrison composed by various writers of the HBW staff.
