Abstract

Morrison recognized transformative politics survive longer when embedded in art, and traces of resistance run below the cinematic black beauty of [the new documentary] Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am. But one has to sift through literary accolades to find the spirit of rebellion curated by Morrison’s editing and embodied in so much of her work. We can only hope that viewers are astute enough to perceive their relevance in a democracy that is falling to pieces, one that has just lost a guiding light.
