POST PRODUCTION NOTE:  We are saddened to hear just a few days after recording this episode that Toni Morrison died at age 88.  Morrison was a trailblazer and a hero to generations of women.  She broke barriers as an editor, a writer, a woman of color, and a teacher.  At the end of her Nobel Prize address, she said, “We die.  That may be the meaning of life.  But we do language.  That may be the measure of our lives.”

Rest in power, Toni Morrison.
