Toni Morrison Speaks at the Y

 92Y On Demand: Toni Morrison

For years now, I’ve just been bored with evil. It’s just not interesting. Evil wears a top hat and it has tap shoes and a cape and it’s onstage and it’s hollerin’. And goodness is always backstage, sort of waving. Evil takes up all the energy because it is nothing. It’s gotta have a costume. It’s gotta be loud. It’s gotta be bloody.“—Toni Morrison

Revisit Morrison’s historic, exclusive New York appearance in April, in which she read and discussed her fierce new novel, God Help the Child. She was introduced by NYC First Lady Chirlane McCray—a great lover of her work—and interviewed by eminent author and Columbia University professor Farah Jasmine Griffin.
