This episode is dedicated to the late Nobel laureate and Pulitzer Prize-winning author, editor, and teacher, Toni Morrison. Ben Binversie '17 talks with Shanna Benjamin, Johanna Giebelhaus '96, and President Raynard S. Kington about the legacy of Morrison, whose name will be the first in a new series of names to be engraved on the walls of the new Humanities and Social Studies Center. Kington and Benjamin discuss the radical importance of Morrison in amplifying black women's voices and subverting the white gaze, and Giebelhaus shares her insights from producing and editing the documentary film, Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am.
