Black History Month panel: Toni Morrison's Lasting Legacy


Location: Civil Rights Heritage Center, 1040 W. Washington St., South Bend 

Toni Morrison

As a part of Black History Month, the Notre Dame Initiative on Race and Resilience and the Civil Rights Heritage Center will host a panel discussion of Toni Morrison’s works.

Morrison, a Nobel Prize laureate, Pulitzer Prize-winner, novelist, essayist, playwright, poet, editor, and educator, was perhaps the most important literary figure writing in English at the turn of the 21st century. A panel of writers and scholars will discuss her work and its impact on contemporary culture, art, and racial politics, and invites you to participate in the conversation.


With introductions by Darryl Heller, the Director of the Civil Rights Heritage Center, and Mark Sanders, the founding director of the Initiative on Race and Resilience and a professor of English and Africana Studies.
