“The Pieces I Am” – March 17

Sunday, March 17, 3 p.m.

Toni Morrison – The Pieces I Am

An artful and intimate meditation on the life and works of the legendary storyteller and Nobel prize-winner. From her childhood in the steel town of Lorain, Ohio, to ʼ70s-era book tours with Muhammad Ali, from the front lines with Angela Davis to her own riverfront writing room – Toni Morrison leads 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. Inspired to write because no one took a “little black girl” seriously, Morrison reflects on her lifelong deconstruction of the master narrative. Woven together with a rich collection of art, history, literature and personality, the film includes discussions about her many critically acclaimed works, including novels The Bluest Eye, Sula and Song of Solomon, her role as an editor of iconic African American literature and her time teaching at Princeton University. Features interviews with Hilton Als, Angela Davis, Fran Lebowitz, Walter Mosley, Sonia Sanchez and Oprah Winfrey, who turned Morrison’s novel Beloved into a feature film.

Wednesday, March 20, 6:30 p.m.

The Disappearance of Shere Hite

No discussion of women’s history is complete without a look at women’s sexual liberation and Shere Hite was a major influence in the modern movement. Her 1976 bestselling book, The Hite Report, revealed the most private sexual experiences of thousands of anonymous women and elevated the orgasm to new heights. Her findings rocked the American establishment and presaged current conversations about gender, sexuality and bodily autonomy. But then, instead of becoming a major voice for the feminist movement, she seemed to disappear. This unusual documentary attempts to explain what happened to Shere Hite and why.

The film will be introduced by fiction writer and blogger, Randy Kraft. A brief discussion will follow the screening.

Toni Morrison – The Pieces I Am | March 17, 3 p.m.
