Happy Birthday, Toni Morrison!
Toni Morrison is an American literary giant who continues to inspire the truth and grit of everything I write and/or say. In celebration of Toni Morrison’s 84th birthday, I would like to share one of my favorite speeches that she delivered early in her career. “The Humanist View” was delivered in 1975 at Portland State University for its Black Studies Center Public Dialogue. The speech is as relevant in 2015 as it was in 1975. Find the audio (approx. 30 mins) of the speech below:
