Toni Morrison

"...who in novels characterized by visionary force and poetic import, gives life to an essential aspect of American reality."
     -- The Nobel Foundation

In 1993, Toni Morrison became the first African-American woman to win the Nobel Prize for Literature. Well before that, people were taking notice of her work. She has also won the National Book Critics' Circle Award, the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters Award and a Pulitzer Prize. In 1980, President Jimmy Carter appointed Morrison to the National Council on the Arts. She currently writes (her latest book, "Paradise," was published in 1998) and serves as the Robert F. Goheen Professor in the Council of Humanities at Princeton University.
