With Good Reason

Sheer Good Fortune: Celebrating Toni Morrison
October 27th, 2012

Nobel Laureate Toni Morrison was born Chloe Wofford in 1931. She was 39 when she published her first novel about a black girl’s painful coming of age in a white society. The Bluest Eye and many subsequent works have earned Morrison the highest accolades in literature and established her as one of America’s leading fiction writers. Nikki Giovanni (Virginia Tech) and Joanne Gabbin (James Madison University) paid tribute to Toni Morrison with an extravaganza at VT that included nationally renowned writers, singers, and poets, including Maya Angelou. With Good Reason interviewed Toni Morrison and shares highlights from the night of tributes.

  • I was fortunate enough to awaken in the middle of the
    night when the program was on. I missed a some minutes and would have a cd of the tribute, if possible. What I heard was quite a treat.
    Thank you

  • Greetings, Sarah!

    I would like to sing your praises to the winds!

    The broader community needs your input, much like

    that of “A Moment In Time” on WCVE!

    The show today on Pocahontas was mind-blowing in

    it’s de-valuation of the tales we’ve been told.

    I await your show every Sat with great anticipation!

    Since you featured my friend, Lisa Burrs, I’ve

    intended to acknowledge your value to my personal

    pedagogy. Stacy Burrs has valuable tales to tell, as

    well! BRAVO! Please forward Sheer Good Fortune

    and a facsimile of the program booklet.

    Appreciative Regards
