Toni Morrison's Work to be Discussed in Lecture by English Professor Sept. 24

Dr. Sandra Cox, assistant professor of English, will present "Banning Beloved: The Impact of Toni Morrison's Fiction on American Literature" Sept. 24 at 6 p.m. at the Cape Girardeau Public Library. Cox will examine the life and legacy of Nobel Laureate and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Toni Morrison, who was also the first African American woman to hold an endowed professorship at an Ivy League university. Cox will argue that Morrison, as an author and an editor, changed how American fiction is published, written and read by broadening the perspectives that fiction presents on cultural history and literary aesthetics. Cox will also address the numerous challenges to the inclusion of Morrison's novel "Beloved" in high school curricula, especially in the state of Missouri, as a means of investigating the larger impact of the novel on how young people grapple with the history of racial injustice in the United States. For more information, contact Cox at scox@semo.edu
