Toni Morrison Dies At 88


Not sure whether this is the right forum, but seems this should be noted someplace here.

Toni Morrison, Whose Soaring Novels Were Rooted In Black Lives, Dies At 88

Quote:
Morrison died Monday night at Montefiore Medical Center in New York, according to her publisher Penguin Random House. Her work focused on African-American life and culture, and she dominated an industry in which depictions of black life were often limited and rooted in stereotype.
