What you'll learn in this poetry class:

92Y brings together a group of the nation’s most celebrated Black scholars, critics and writers for a year-long series on all the novels of Toni Morrison—from The Bluest Eye (1975), which she wrote between her day job as a book editor and her life as a single mother; to God Help the Child, from which she read on our stage in 2015, the last of many 92Y appearances over the years.

Morrison was The Robert F. Goheen Professor in the Humanities, Emerita, at Princeton University, as well as the recipient of the National Book Critics Circle Award, the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Foundation’s Medal of Distinguished Contribution to American Letters, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Obama. She was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1993 for writing “novels characterized by visionary force and poetic import” that give “life to an essential aspect of American reality.”

Each scholar will deliver a 45-minute lecture on a novel and then answer questions posed via Zoom’s chat feature.

  • March 25: Sula with Farah Jasmine Griffin
  • April 29: Song of Solomon with Hilton Als
  • May 27: Tar Baby with Carolyn Denard

An access link will be emailed to you after purchase.
