The Origin of Others (The Charles Eliot Norton Lectures, 2016)
by Toni Morrison
Genre: African-American/Criticism & Theory/Discrimination & Racism
What is race and why does it matter? Why does the presence of Others make us so afraid? America’s foremost novelist reflects on themes that preoccupy her work and dominate politics: race, fear, borders, mass movement of peoples, desire for belonging. Ta-Nehisi Coates provides a foreword to Toni Morrison’s most personal work of nonfiction to date.
