Toni Morrison Documentary Tribute “The Pieces I Am” Slated for September 17 from Magnolia

Magnolia Home Entertainment has announced the upcoming release of Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am (DVD: $26.98), slated for September 17. Directed by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, the film offers an artful and intimate meditation on the life and works of acclaimed Nobel Prize-winning novelist Toni Morrison (1931-2019). From her childhood in the steel town of Lorain, OH, to her 1970s-era book tours with Muhammad Ali, from the front lines with Angela Davis to her own riverfront writing room, Morrison led an assembly of her peers, critics, and colleagues on an exploration of race, America, history, and the human condition as seen through the prism of her own literature. The Pieces I Am includes discussions about her many critically acclaimed works—including her novels The Bluest Eye, Sula, Song of Solomon, and Beloved—her role as an editor of iconic African American literature, and her time teaching at Princeton University. Bonus features include deleted scenes and portraits by Greenfield-Sanders.
