“The destiny of the twenty-first century will be shaped by the possibility or collapse of a shareable world.”- Toni Morrison

Morrison invited renowned artists whose work also deals with the experience of cultural and social displacement to join her in a public conversation that she had been pursuing for years. The film expands that conversation, combining exclusive footage of the Nobel Laureate in dialogue with artists—first, in Paris in 2006 and then, in 2015, at her home in New York state—with extensive archival film footage, music, and still images to present a series of candid and incisive exchanges about race, identity, “foreignness,” and art’s redemptive power.

After the film, join Grace Aldrich for a brief discussion and hear about her upcoming journey, Walking with Grace. She will share opportunities to participate in her unfolding practice of humanity inspired by teachers and leaders who have walked as a practice of liberation.
