The site is back up, however not all the data has been restored. We are still waiting for the data recovery service to finish working on the drive. As of right now there are a lot of uploaded video and image files that still need to be restored. There are also some newer channels that have not been restored as of yet. As soon as the restoration process is complete I will update here.
Toni Morrison Refuses To Privilege White People In Her Novels!
"Toni Morrison has always taken for granted the centrality of Blackness in her novels. She has refused throughout her writing career to privilege "Whiteness" in her literary works. In this clip, Toni Morrison discusses the way she felt when interview Bill Moyers asked her when she would write about white people, as if this was something she should be interested in doing. She refuses to accept the idea that writing about Black people is not "real writing," and that Black writers must engage with White characters or the White world in order for their writing to be legitimate. She will not privilege White people, nor will she explain things to White readers."
