An Outpouring of Love for Toni Morrison

An Outpouring of Love for Toni Morrison

Everyone is trying to come to grips with the passing of one of the world’s greatest wonders, Ms. Toni Morrison. 

News of her death broke early this morning and an immediate wave of condolences, love and reverence flooded social media. There were articles unearthed with invaluable wisdom from Morrison, like this gem where Morrison and Angela Davis discuss their friendship. Or this article in Essence with Nikki Giovanni, Morrison and Maya Angelou, talking about the state of Black women. 

Many just decided to speak of the literary giant in her own words. We wrote about Morrison in remembrance, but even we found it hard to encapsulate such a grand life into one post, it was impossible, an exercise in futility. Maybe the only way to do her legacy justice, is to speak her own words. Below we’ve compiled some of the most heartwarming tributes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Deeply missed is an understatement, but her words and impact will live forever!
