She has written adored modern classics like Beloved and Song of Solomon that daringly blend the supernatural and the natural with an uncommonly poetic eloquence. She is a recipient of both the Pulitzer Prize and the Noble Prize for Literature, and is truly one of America’s most gifted storytellers.

Remember: The Journey to School Integration
by Toni Morrison
This treasure trove of archival photographs collected by Morrison depicts the historical events surrounding school desegregation. These unforgettable images serve as the inspiration for Ms. Morrison's text -- a fictional account of the dialogue and emotions of the children who lived during the era of 'separate but equal' schooling.
