An Ode To Women Who Dare Greatly. Toni Morrison, Maya Angelou, Dr. Elfie Israel and All Women Who Enter The Arena!

November 25, 2019

I will never forget meeting Toni Morrison and her inscribing Beloved among other books. I told her about my nationally renowned AP English teacher, Dr. Elfie Israel, who had us read Beloved and analyze every sentence. She also assigned Maya Angelou, William Faulkner, George Carlin, Langston Hughes, Lenny Bruce, Shakespeare, T.S. Elliot, Nikki Giovanni, Oscar Wilde, Mark Twain, Lincoln among other rebellious luminaries. She dared us to think outside the box, write and rewrite endlessly, analyze, question and revolt against injustice. Toni Morrison was captivated by a teacher who could be so bold and daring.


Elfie, I hope you and Toni are sharing a glass of whiskey with Maya, while discussing great books, poems and art! "LOVE" always, which serendipitously is the name of the book Toni Morrison was discussing when we met.
