Toni Morrison & Angela Davis: a conversation on Literacy, Libraries, and Liberation

The two aforementioned names are fixtures in my life that hold insurmountable weight. They are influential beings that have provided hope in my quests as a writer and socially conscious citizen; they have also served as intimidating figures whose accomplishments proved greater than anything I could ever hope to achieve. But, nonetheless, they are omnipresent in my quests as a writer, a thinker, a woman, black woman, an artist.

I encourage you all to check out the video link below of a conversation these two revolutionaries had at the New York Public Library in 2010 where they discussed their childhoods, their literary work, and theories on life.
