Toni Morrison wasn't just one of the best fiction authors. The posted parts of her essays written for them, including this amazing one about Disneyland. LOOK AT THE HIGHLIGHTED PART. I'm sad that this vital American voice is gone.

Love for Toni Morrison has made online uplifting for once. To add -this incredible woman who has had such phenomenal impact published her first book at 39, her first ‘breakthrough’ at 46. So take her advice, write whatever it is u want to read, whatever ur age ❤️

Today, my first novel was released. Toni Morrison: I really took your words to heart. I wrote the book I wanted to read. I have at least two more I want to read badly. I will get to work on that.

A friend of mine shared a brief excerpt of Toni Morrison’s “Paradise” with me a few weeks ago. Her talent, craft and gift is irreplaceable. May we cherish her memory and honor the contributions of black women in our country.

"You're turning over your whole life to him. Your whole life, girl. And if it means so little to you that you can just give it away, hand it to him, then why should it mean any more to him? He can't value you more than you value yourself." —Song of Solomon, 1977
