Toni Morrison Refuses To Privilege White People In Her Novels!

46 Views

"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."
