Selected Shorts on Tour: Dallas Museum of Art

Ss Dallas Tour Toni Morrison Main Image 1 Symphony Space 2021

Description

Selected Shorts returns to Arts & Letters Live with a tribute to Toni Morrison, who died in August 2019. Her novels, including Beloved, Jazz, and Song of Solomon, have become an indelible part of the American canon. Her fierce, poetic visions articulated deep truths about racial injustice in America and earned her the Pulitzer Prize, the Nobel Prize, a National Book Critics Circle Award, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom. She was also an editor, an advocate, a teacher, and a mother.

Hosted by award-winning author Yaa Gyasi  (Homegoing, Transcendent Kingdom), this not-to-be-missed program features commentary on Morrison’s legacy by Fran Lebowitz along with readings of “The Dancing Mind,” “Sweetness,” and excerpts from Jazz and Sula by actors Brandon J. Dirden (All the Way), Joe Morton (Scandal), Anika Noni Rose  (Little Fires Everywhere), and Charlayne Woodard (Ain’t Misbehavin’, Hair).
