Happy 83rd Birthday to Toni Morrison, our greatest living writer.
I nearly failed English my junior year of high school, and in order to get a D, I was forced to read and write papers about two books over summer vacation. One was a Shakespeare play; the other was The Bluest Eye. I’d already read Song of Solomon, which I’d loved even though I felt like a lot of it flew over my head. But The Bluest Eye was exactly what I needed. It was, as John Leonard wrote in the New York Times, nightmare and music.

"We don’t like pictures like this. It is not good to deduce an entire country to the image of a person reaching out for food. It is not good for people to see us like this, and it is not good for us to see ourselves like this. This gives us no dignity. We don’t want to be shown as a country of people waiting for someone to bring us food. Congo has an incredible amount of farmland. An incredible amount of resources. Yes, we have a lot of problems. But food is not what we are reaching for. We need investment. We need the means to develop ourselves."
