Writers Read Toni Morrison with Amy Mevorach

September 20 @ 7:00 pm 8:30 pm EST

Toni Morrison wrote, “It seems to me that the best art is political, and you ought to be able to make it unquestionably political and irrevocably beautiful simultaneously.” In this seminar, participants will read Morrison’s first novel, The Bluest Eye, and several of her essays or speeches, exploring how Morrison uses a colonial language — English — to decolonize literature and restore Black culture and community. You don’t have to consider yourself a writer to join the class, only a willingness to approach Morrison’s work with an eye for a writer’s craft and intention.

6 Wednesdays, 7-8:30pm Begins Sep. 20. This class will meet in-person at the Cambridge Center for Adult Education. Limited availability.
