8.6.19 …”she treated time nontraditionally. … a fusion of the African American story within the American story … we know that her stories—that our stories—will always be with us, and with those who come after, and on and on, for all time.”

I never read Toni Morrison. I’m not sure why, probably anxiety over how I would respond.

I loved this piece from President Obama, especially this:

“Time is no match for Toni Morrison. In her writing, she sometimes toyed with it, warping and creasing it, bending it to her masterful will. In her life’s story, too, she treated time nontraditionally. … a fusion of the African American story within the American story. Toni Morrison was a national treasure. Her writing was not just beautiful but meaningful—a challenge to our conscience and a call to greater empathy. She was as good a storyteller, as captivating, in person as she was on the page. … we know that her stories—that our stories—will always be with us, and with those who come after, and on and on, for all time.”
