Fabulous!
5 July 2019 | by guyadiangoldSee all my reviews

I loved this documentary! It left me feeling inspired and empowered. I have read a few of Ms. Morrison's books. They were complicated, yet I could not put them down. Her books are an insight to the inner workings of her mind: complicated, intense and most of all brilliant!

I was grateful for the opportunity to be given a personal look to the insight of this brilliant, and thoughtful scholar. It makes we want to go out and buy all of her books and reexamine them through a deeper lens.
