RIP - Toni Morrison, Trailblazing Author Of "Beloved"
“When you get these jobs that you have been so brilliantly trained for, just remember that your real job is that if you are free, you need to free somebody else. If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else. This is not just a grab-bag candy game.” - Toni Morrison
Morrison, who dedicated her career to centering the lives and histories of African Americans, won both the Nobel Prize in Literature and the Pulitzer Prize. She was also presented the Medal of Freedom by President Barack Obama.
American has lost another great. I bow my head to you, Toni.
