The series will continue with the documentary “Toni Morrison, the Pieces I Am” on Monday-Saturday, Sept. 30-Oct. 5. The film examines the life of writer Toni Morrison, her works and the powerful themes she confronted throughout her literary career. Morrison, who died in early August, is the only African-American to win the Nobel Prize in Literature. She was awarded many literary prizes, including the Pulitzer Prize, and was also awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom. The Atlantic Monthly has said that the film, which was released just prior to Morrison’s death, “captures the larger-than-life author in exceedingly human terms.” The Los Angeles Times has called it “moving and profound.” The film is rated PG-13.
