Synopsis

An exploration of race from one of the twentieth century’s primary chroniclers of the African American experience.

Is who we are really only skin deep?

In this searing, remonstrative book, Toni Morrison unravels race through the stories of those debased and dehumanised because of it.

A young black girl longing for the blue eyes of white baby dolls spirals into inferiority and confusion . . . A friendship falls apart over a disputed memory . . . An ex-slave is haunted by a lonely, rebukeful ghost, bent on bringing their past home.

Strange and unexpected, yet always stirring, Morrison’s writing on race sinks us deep into the heart and mind of our troubled humanity.

Includes selected excerpts from the books : Song of Solomon, The Bluest Eye & Beloved by Toni Morrison.

External Reviews

‘She gave me permission to be unapologetically Black. She informed me of the power that resided in me. She validated me when the world questioned my humanity’ - Angie Thomas, author of The Hate U Give.

"This was a very strong collection of stories and essays by Toni Morrison where she discusses race and racism from many different perspectives. I loved that she was able to show different sides of racism, not only from white people, but black people as well. She was able to convey how much racism or being a product of racism really affects you, and how that stigma never goes away no matter how much time has passed." - Amazon Review.

"Thank you Vintage Mini for you have opened my mind and my heart! Toni Morrison is truly brilliant." - Goodreads Review.
