Cornell University: Cornell celebrates Morrison’s birthday with screening, roundtable

Cornell will celebrate the birthday of alumna and Nobel Laureate Toni Morrison MA ’55 from 3-5 p.m. Feb. 18 with a screening of the film “The Foreigner’s Home” (2017), followed by a roundtable discussion. Both events are virtual, free and open to the public. Sign up here.

“The Foreigner’s Home” explores Morrison’s artistic and intellectual vision through ‘The Foreigner’s Home,’ her 2006 exhibition at the Louvre. Through exclusive footage of Morrison in dialogue with artists, along with extensive archival footage, music, and animation, the film presents a series of candid and incisive exchanges about race, identity, “foreignness” and art’s redemptive power. Based on writings by Toni Morrison and conversations with Edwidge Danticat.
