Rest in peace to Queen Toni Morrison who died on Monday (August 5) in The Bronx. She was 88.
The first African-American woman to win the Nobel Prize in Literature, Ms. Morrison was the author of 11 novels as well as children’s books and essay collections. Among them were celebrated works like “Song of Solomon,” which received the National Book Critics Circle Award in 1977, and “Beloved,” which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1988.

Like Maya, Langston and James, Toni will continue to live on and give voice to Black Lives and Black Souls.
Rest in Power.
