Toni Morrison at 90: Examining Her Powerful and Lasting Influence

February 18, 2021 at 5:00 PM ET

Toni Morrison, M.A. ’55, is one of Cornell’s most beloved alumni. Although she left us in 2019, her work continues to both resonate and inspire.

On what would have been her 90th birthday, a panel of international scholars will discuss how Morrison’s scholarship and art have impacted writers, critics, and readers, and why her work still feels so fresh and vital today.

This special event is part of the College of Arts & Sciences’ Arts Unplugged series and a yearlong celebration of a literary icon whose first book, “The Bluest Eye,” recently marked its 50th anniversary. Please join Cornel University as they celebrate Toni Morrison’s life, career, and enduring legacy. Register here >
